Gi Visit

Entry posted by ohsotired · - 197 views

Today was my visit with the GI doctor.
I think I like this guy. He asked a lot of questions, and took a lot of notes.
I told him that there's a history of IBS in my family, as well as Diverticulitis and Ulcerative Colitis. I also told him that I'd been 'diagnosed' with IBS about 8 years ago. He asked me "How were you diagnosed?" I must have had a funny look on my face, because he then asks "Were there any tests run?"
I said, "No, she listened to me for about five minutes and then said 'Oh you have IBS' and handed me a prescription for Zoloft."
His response: "We're not calling anything IBS until we rule out everything else."

So they collected blood samples, sent me home with a stool sample kit and scheduled me for a colonoscopy (7/28).
There are some really foul jokes that come to mind about the stool sample collection kit, but this is a family community, so I'll keep those to myself. ;)

So now I wait.
