08:04 pm - GI Doc Betting Pool now open
I see my GI doc tomorrow, almost a full two weeks after I hit the Emergency Room last time.

I am now taking bets on what the outcome of this visit will be.



The most likely candidate is "How are you feeling now?" "Fine." "Okay, well, call us if you don't feel fine. Ka-CHING!"

Second is, "Well, let's run a few blood tests. In the meantime, call us if you don't feel fine. Ka-CHING!"

Third, and somewhat unlikely (I'd give it at leat 5 to one odds against), is "We should do another colonoscopy/endoscopy just to make sure. Ka-CHING-ING-ING-ING!"

Almost out of the question is, "Oh my goodness. That's a bad deal. It's probably [something that is known about Crohn's disease that would cause this sort of thing but is treatable]. We'll try you on [new ultra-cool medication and/or treatment] and see how you do," or "That's because you did X. Don't do that anymore. Ka-CHING!"

Vote for your choice.

Cynical? Moi?

No, not really. Why would you say so?

"I see you sprung for the big bucks to be a lj subscriber..."

HA! As if.

That's my voting script. I just linked to it from LJ.

Like I'm going to buy an LJ account to put up a poll when I have my own perfectly good poll script.

Hmph.

You wound me, sirrah!

I think the docs will be good little docs and given your recent history they will blood test you, just to be safe. And then send you home.

And then you eat sushi! (the maki, not the man...)

Yeah, I'm not eating this morning just in case they want to do some kind of fasting blood test.

They did blood tests at the ER, though.

My dad's a GI.

Sorry, Alex, but I'm gonna have to pick "Bend over and try not to clench" for $400.

*hugs*

Heh. I should mention that I really like my GI doc. He's a good guy and a good doctor. I'm just coming to find out over the last few years what an inexact science medicine is, particularly with GI-type stuff. There's just so much damn stuff in your abdominal cavity that it's hard to pick one.

So, they just sort of wander around and rule things out as they go, sometimes.

But it's still frustrating. :-)

I'm sick of Doctors. Gack!

Not only will he not do anything medical, he will hit on you when he's got you alone.

You will break his nose, but he had it coming.
