I have recently been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and my Gastroenterologist started me on Flagyl. When that was done I was to wait another 2 weeks before seeing him again but my symptoms got worse as soon as the Flagyl was finished. I called and have now been on Endocort for over a month. He has not really explained much to me and when I ask questions it seems like he doesn’t really have answers. He is not giving me any information and I feel like he may not have a great understanding of Crohn’s. It has been very frustrating to have him concentrate on my bowels and not all the other stuff that I have with it. Yes I have diarrhea, yes my abdomen hurts but I am also exhausted, my joints hurt and I just want some answers I feel only he can give.
If he is not answering my questions am I right to think he is not the doctor for me? Am I just frustrated with this disease that presents different for everyone and have overreacted to not getting the answers?
If anyone else has had this problem please let me know how you handled it. Thank you!
