Here's a Lesson For You

The doctor's office called today to tell me that my tests were all fine. I said "what tests?" She said "biopsies." I asked if she would fax them.

They say "chronic active ileitis." That is not fine. That is active Crohn's disease. I never would have known had I not asked to have them faxed to me.

So there's a lesson for us all. ALWAYS gather your records as you go and read them. If they say something different from what the doctor told you and you don't understand the discrepancy, ask.

It's your right. Jennifer
