Hello my LS friends! Well 6 weeks after being diagnosed with no prescription, no treatment advice, no follow- up and self- treating, I FINALLY got in to discuss my test results wirh my Dr.’s MALE Partner. 🙄🙄 He apologized that I “fell through the cracks” during her transition out of the office , and he wanted to discuss the report results. Of course it said LS and he immediately said he was going to prescribe me Clob and I just let loose! Asked him about side effects of clob, alternatives, dietary change impact, etc. it was like everything I had been thinking for 6 weeks just came pouring out! And you know what? He listened. He didn’t dismiss me out of hand, he ordered all the thyroid, autoimmune and liver congestion panel tests Nancy had talked about. He discussed the benefits of adding a Tumeric supplement ( wasn’t too sure about the validity of the others) , encoraged a Paleo approach to diet ( getting rid of Gluten, sugar, additives), and was even open to discussing alternatives like the laser. He said he would read more research before he saw me again, encouraged me to continue my homeopathic concoctions, and said I didn’t need to use the Clob until I was in a flare. Took some current pics, said my anal fussure was not bad, dismissed my introitus scarring as from 3 vaginal deliveries in 4 years and wasn’t worried about it tearing during sex, said he could do a little sniping around my clitoris to peel back the hood, encouraged the use of lube during intercourse and discussed possible hormone pellets which I am leery of being a singer ( testosterone can make bocal cords grow and change the voice- no thx! ). He didn’t think my restrictive low oxalate diet woukd effect LS mch, but was good due to my history of kidney stones. I go back in 3 weeks, I will fill the clob prescription and use it on the anal fissure only - no pain or itching anywhere, and see what blood tests show.
At least I feel somewhat proactive now....
Am a little concerned that he didn't think diet was that big a deal, I hv tried to be so good last 6 weeks and it is currently under control, don’t want to mess things up now. Your thoughts my knowledgable friends??? Nancy? Guppy? Hanney?
