Yes, the doctor who finally helped me is an old-timer. I was actually quite nervous because he was so old. But as opposed to the 2 “up to date” gastros who blew me off as long as it wasn’t colitis, crohn’s or cancer, he tried to help. And B”H(!!!) it actually worked. Once my system slowed down, I stayed on the meds for a few months, and I have been fine for a few years since. (Bli Ayin Hara.)
BTW, it is a drug that is not used in the US. He told me that he has patients who bring it in from E”Y. HaIkar that it worked.
Very frustrating to be the patient and have doctors tell you that nothing is wrong with you, when they could have put a little effort into trying some things to help you, even if they are “old school”.
OP- A blessing to you to find the root cause of your health problems and a Refuah Shleimah!January 30, 2013 8:36 pm at 8:36 pm #925294snowbunny3318Member

No, it’s disgusting to blow s/o off. The only Limud Zecus for these Docs is that the socialized medicine in Israel is paying them so little for diseases like IBS that they basically are forced to blow people off. They should have referred you to mental health.
B’H still in the US, where socialism is NOT YET running our med system, Gastros treat IBS. They give different meds for it depending on the type. They also are giving TCA’s, which IMHO is better for shrinks to prescribe than Gastros, because they know these drugs better.January 30, 2013 9:49 pm at 9:49 pm #925296snowbunny3318Member
