Updates in order.
First off, I'm not sure if I've shared this part, which if I haven't, I should have.
In these 3 years since I've lived in Mattoon, I've never seen a GI Specialist (Crohn's inflammatory bowel etc) that is close to home. I did have a colonoscopy the first year I came to live in Mattoon. I didn't go to Saint Louis because the guy was a nut. Although that may have to do with a report of my first colonoscopy in 1998 not being in the Barnes system since it wasn't in a computer. They did not get computer systems merging with Children's Hospital until 2004, thus the 1998 report probably got recycled into a paper cup or something. So since it wasn't in the computer, the doctor's didn't look for it because they obeyed what the computer said, and not the darn patient. They relied on what the computer said entirely, which was I had my first colonoscopy in 2004 which wasn't accurate, but if the computer said so, it must be true. I Blame SkyNet
So my first colonoscopy that was done here where I live showed i was in remission. Although now through some obeying the computer evidence, they now say I don't have Crohn's or any type of colitis problems. Which I might entertain the idea if I was I diagnosed in the past 3 years. Problem is though, it was 13 years ago and the Children's doctor I had wasn't a quack or anything. We knew him personally. Also he's now the Boss of the GI department at Cardinal Glennon's Children's Hospital
So regarding my belly pain, one doctor came up with the idea that I might have some adhesions from my belly surgeries....possible, but the problem with that is, I've never had belly Surgery until I was 17 years old and I have only had 3 of them. One being my Gallbladder Removal Surgery, and two hernia surgeries 3 years later on the same hernia. The only other related things I had were colonoscopies, which don't count as Belly Surgery. So that doctor wanted me to see a surgeon. Although he said they might not want to touch me in surgery. I Then embraced for that I'm too fat and large speech, however he said it wouldn't be because of my weight....which I was shocked. He said the reason why is because of my Hernia Mesh Patch....if someone made one bad accidental cut, they could break my abdominal wall. He sent me to a Surgeon which I saw the other day. He says he's sure it's not adhesions given the evidence and the belly surgeries only having 3 of them. He said usually when someone comes in with stuff regarding Crohn's I see a specialist. I told him I've been up here 2 years trying to get one but to no results. I don't need a referral from my insurance to see a GI Specialist, however Carle Clinic Does. They tell you which doctor's you can go and see and it's like a gatekeeper system....and some people are saying Government telling you what doctor you can and can't go to is unconstitutional, hell it's already here. So Finally this brilliant Surgeon refers me to a Colon Rectal Surgeon Doctor. I'll get to his humorous/ironic name in a minute.
I feel like when I see the doctors around here, I have the time want to ask them, let's hook up the polygraph lie detector test while I have an appointment. The Doctors I've seen up here, are like that a-hole Dean in Patch Adams. I feel like this what Patch Adams (obviously played by Patch Adams) is how I feel about Doctors and such and I'm Seeing more of Salute the Doctor day in and day out than I do of the kind that Patch Adams represents. Which is in my own humble opinion troubling and sad. This speech In the movie is how I feel 100%

Also now back to the name of the colon rectal surgeon I'll be seeing on the 21st.....I'll leave the link under this paragraph, rather than post the name myself, since when you've gone though so much like I have, and anyone, At some point, you have to almost laugh about it, or you'll go into a terribly depressed coma. All I have to say, this guy has got to have a thick skin mind and have a lot of humor given the name of his last name, and being a GI doctor.
Click Here for the link of the name of the GI Doctor I'm seeing, Trust me you'll laugh.
Also I'm wearing my Bi-pap at night, which helps a lot now that we have it figured out and all. oh and I also have been diagnosed with Floppy Eyelid Syndrome. Which is the most blunt and self explainable name of a syndrome I've heard of....maybe they gave up on Latin words and said heck let's just call it Floppy Eyelid Syndrome
For proof here is a link that has info on this.....odd name of a syndrome
