Had my appt. today and yes, my dr is extremely kind, supportive, and always takes his time... plus...he is willing to openly admit when there doesn't seem to be a 'real cure' for things... such as the fatigue that comes after a BM. When I told him I had found some exercises for the Vagus nerve (via Google) he said "Go for it...might as well give it a try and let me know if it helps.'
He ordered all the usual tests done...CBC, urine, and poop test... I hope all turn out well, because IT IS comforting and reassuring when they come back ok... and goodness knows, we can all use reassurance.
I've had a better day than yesterday, but am worn out... just gonna veg out watching my TV comedy shows tonight.
