Wednesday, March 30, 2016, I had an emergency surgery for a rare type of hernia in my colon. Then I went to a GI doctor on my plan who didn't really help me. He decided I had IBS-C just by reading the hospital reports and told me to use Miralax three times a day to keep regulated. I did as he told me but I got worse. I still had the same symptoms I had before my surgery. I was sick for a year and half before my surgery.
A month ago I found a really great GI doctor. He told me he isn't going to examine me, but send me for tests because it will be the only way to rule out things and find out exactly what is going on. So I had an ultrasound to see if I had gallbladder issues and then two weeks ago I had an upper endoscopy. Ultrasound was normal. The endoscopy showed that my stomach is inflamed, but every medication I took bothered me more. I spoke to the doctor yesterday, he told me he will change my medication but he wants me to go for an MRI of the small intestine.
So today I told my mom that the doctor is sending me for an MRI. During the conversation, she says "Well if the medication works maybe you won't have to go for the MRI". This got me furious due to the fact the other GI doctors I went to before my surgery and after never sent me for tests and I kept getting sicker and sicker. My mom was angry at those doctors for not sending me for tests and now the comment she made today about "maybe you won't have to go...." really pissed me off. I want to find out the cause of my symptoms.
So do you think I overreacted to her comment, I am so angry at her. I wanted her to say "I am glad they are sending you for an MRI", but she didn't.
