Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for November 15, 2005


Every day the doctor comes in and she is still very concerned about the amount of gas in the gastrointestinal tract. She asks if the gastro specialist has come yet and although we keep asking the nurses about it, there is no sign of him. As a precaution, they want to take some x-rays.

My wife calls her mother and tells her about the how we’ve been waiting three days for the specialist. She recommends that we call her regular Crohn’s specialist to see if he knows the doctor and ask him to come. We get the phone number and I call his office. I talk to the receptionist and explain the situation. She’ll let him know and I asked if he could call my wife directly and she agrees to pass on the message.

He called later that afternoon and spoke to my wife. He knew the specialist out here and would call him. By nine o’clock the specialist shows up with her x-rays. He was a very nice man and explained everything in detail. He said the x-rays do show a lot of gas in the gastrointestinal tract and he precribes a drug that should help.

The effect was immediate and the next day her doctor was happy with the progress and felt it was okay to go home.
