Gi Appointment Today

Recommended Posts

My daughter's first GI appointment is today....I'm so nervous!  I don't know why, I'm not sure what else he could tell us that I don't already know or suspect.  But I'm so, so nervous.....

Hugs mama! I think specialized Drs make me nervous. I've never dealt with a doctor outside of our regular doc and an allergist/ENT (my husband and both my boys had their tonsils/adenoids out kind of back to back and the youngest and the hubby have nasty seasonal and cat allergies) but not really anything beyond that.

 

 

I wasn't super nervous about my son's appointment....but then I didn't think there was anything really seriously wrong with him either. :( I mean...I know a constant stomach ache isn't normal...but for the most part, he'd complain once or twice and then he'd be fine. His energy levels were the same he was just eating less. Now his energy levels have gone down a bit and he complains less but I'm not sure why. We haven't changed anything with his diet yet. They (thankfully) didn't tell me everything they were testing him for until after the testing and they called with the results. That was when I panicked a little....because the DOCTOR called me. The doctor never calls....it's always the nurse. Always. Unless it's something bad. So, yeah, I panicked because I missed her phone call because my phone was not working properly that day but I got to listen to her leave a message. Which, of course, they can't leave any details so my brain panicked....I almost went into a full blown panic attack (which I have NEVER in my life done!) and am thankful that there were some neighbors home that were able to talk me down. :)

When I finally was able to use my stupid phone and talk to them and they told me Celiac's....I was actually kind of relieved. I'd heard of it and while I was rather mistaken in what it actually is....what my brain had come up with in the short amount of time between phone calls was MUCH MUCH worse. Now, we're waiting for his biopsy and I'm getting my whole family tested. It explains some issues for both my husband and my older son and could explain some things for myself and my daughter (migraines) so we are all getting tested. Not sure we're going to get biopsies for everyone or not....I'll have to discuss that with their doctors. But we're all going gluten free anyway.

Good luck with her GI appointment. I find them kind of scary but not too much as the only GI I've ever met (my son's) has been a lovely lady and actually listened to the things I told her. Which, I have to say, was quite nice! Sorry for the rambling. I'm rather new to all this as well...just wanted to let you know you're not alone in being nervous.
