We Got A Gi Referral!
Posted 11 July 2012 - 03:57 PM
So we got in there and talked about my son's improvement since cutting his allergies out, but our concern is with the constipation still recurring. My doctor thinks the improvement on the diet and the constipation is all behavioral?! I showed him pictures of my son's outbreaks in rashes after eating certain foods, and the doctor said 'that would be suggestive of allergies', but in the next breath went back to it all being behavioral and Colton will grow out of it, blah, blah, blah...
Everything I showed or argued was put on a deaf ear. Then my husband speaks up and says he thinks it is something more, something GI related. The doctor asks if we would like a referral for a pediatric GI at OHSU. Um, hello! I am standing right here and have been asking for a referral for months!!! In the next breath the doctor did have to add that he doubts a GI will find anything wrong, but if it will put our minds to rest then fine.
Anyhow, at least we have a referral now. Unfortunately, our doctor's office takes care of the referral process, so I can't switch doctors at least until we have the GI office call and get us in! As soon as we hear from them, bye bye doctor!

Ok, so my doctor is still an idiot, but at least we got a referral!
LOL. As the old saying goes, "even a broken clock is right twice a day". I am very happy for you! Hope all goes well.
