I've received a letter referring me to see the gastroenterogist consultant. There was so much confusion as who I was meant to see it being the ibd clinic or gastroenterologist as I might sound stupid but thought they were the same. Firstly my referral letter States I had symptoms in DEC and going to the toilet up to 20 times a day for 3 day's which is incorrect. I had it for 7 days. Don't know if that makes a difference. I don't understand why I'm not being referred to an ibd clinic as it states I have acute terminal ileitis2 and The differential diagnosis includes infection and crohns disease. This was discussed with ibd nurse specialist and surgeon and they adviced I be sent to gastroenteroentologist. Firstly if I have an infection shouldn't I be treated asap and as I have crohns the ibd clinic? They mite be giving me another colonoscopy but don't know why.
