Protein Enzyme Pump

Has anyone heard of or used a Protein Enzyme Pump for IBS. A colleague of my husband's uses it and was surprised that my GI didn't suggest it. I'm trying to get an appointment with his GI but need a referral. That's a sticky wicket as my only doctor in my new state is my GI.

You could just ask your GI about it and see what he says instead of switching doctors.

I still think I want a second opinion. I just need to get a referral and they said it could be from any doctor. The place that was recommended to me has an excellent reputation. My GI isn't open to much that I have to say. I really had to put my foot down to get the capsule endoscopy and that's what showed the ulcer. I hate that this all happened when I moved to a new state. i had really god doctors in NJ. Starting from scratch is a PIA.

Maybe I will bite the bullet and see what he has to say.

If you do, you could get a second opinion on EVERYTHING once you get the referral in place.

Yep and if he refuses to give you a referral for a second opinion you should switch doctors. No doctor who is a good doctor would object to a second opinion.

Thanks and I agree with you. I also think I found another doctor who will do it for me.

I will. I'll have all of my records transferred and bring the results from the tests I had done before I moved.

Thanks!

Even better than just having them transferred is having those complete records sent to you also.

Hospitals will charge you a fee for your records. The easiest way to avoid additional costs is to ask the new doc to make you a photocopy of the records (or ask the old doc to do so). Avoid having to get things directly from Medical Records if you can - that's how you avoid the fee.

Good News! Got a referral from my GI in NJ. I'll still need the records from here (I'll ask to sign a release form) but thank God I can finally switch doctors. The pain is worse and my current GI has done almost nothing but make me feel like it's all in my head!
