Frustrated

I'm having a rough day. My Crohns has flared up again. I forgot how bad it is. Right now I don't feel too bad. I can't get in sooner with my GI doc and it's a couple weeks away yet. My other doc is out of town. So we won't get a hold of him till next week!!! I'm desperate for meds. I guess I'll try to survive this weekend on Pepto Bismol.

Does your gi doctor have any associates working in the office that you could talk to?

This is only my first visit with GI doc. The only way I could see a specialist is if I would go into the ER. I'm not ready to do that.

Where is your CD located? Have you tried switching to an all liquid or formula diet to help ease things til the appt or the doc comes back? Some can do the diets with otc brands like boost, ensure or orgain.

I'm not exactly sure but I'm thinking it's in my small intestine. Thankfully the attack went away for now. I am trying eat a very bland diet. I do have some ensure on hand that I drink various times. Hopefully next week I one of my docs can get me on meds.
