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?
