I have been meaning to get here with the newest update on the camera endoscopy. My doctor called Wednesday. She first spoke with my partner since I was at work and she called me at home. She gets high marks in my book for actually speaking to my partner, especially at length. Then she called me at work.
We spoke for quite a bit. Camera endoscopy looked good as far as all that small bowel stuff. She was also reassured about the mystery spot. She has decided that at this point surgery isn't necessary to remove the mystery spot. YAY!
However, my stomach looked to quote her "bumpy and inflamed" She says the camera isn't such a hot way to look at stomachs so she wants to do a regular upper endoscopy.
Since I have been doing relatively well over the past few weeks she also has decided to hold off on the remicade for as long as we can. Another yay for that. I think she also perhaps concerned about the hives and how remicade and hives won't mix well.
All and all, pretty good news. Upper endoscopy is not my favorite idea of how to spend a day but it could well be worse.
