I've had enough

I'm so frustrated! I'm still waiting to see a specialist for a
Colonoscopy, it's already been 8 months and I keep getting
Pushed back!!!
I'm at the point where eating isn't an option any more because
When I do I suffer... Both pain and diarrheah..
I am on 4mg hydro morphine pills and taking 3 a night because
The pain is so bad!
what do you do when you've reached your breaking point?
are there meds my doctor can try prior to a crohns diagnosis
To calm the symptoms???

I wish I could say try this drug or that drug but I think your doctor knows best what to try, also if you get an allergic reaction he needs to know what you are on etc.
All I can say is it is horrid being pushed down the line like you are, can you ring them and say that it is too long to wait and you need help now as the pain is making you so desperate?
Hugs to you, it sounds like you are having an awful time x

I have called the specialist and they told me that I was first on the list an that it was a 6 month wait, 6 months has come and gone, now it's. A waiting game until I get even a phone call with a date to have a talk with this specialist...
thanks for the help
