I don't think you're meant to take vacations, DE. Seems to me you had some serious flareup a few years ago just prior to a scheduled vacation. They say vacations can be stressful on the body. :) I hope you go in again if your pain & issues continue on like this!

I'm surprised that you were discharged having active blood loss. Hopefully, the pain will subside and you can get back to a normal diet and enjoy that trip.
Take care of your self!

P.S. Getting a specialist appointment in the U.S. can sometimes take a while too! A lot depends on where you live.

I did have issues prior to a vacation last year and a couple of days during the vacation. Hopefully, things will settle down. I was having small clots and small amounts of blood and gas in the ER. Then I had nothing. I think because my colon was empty. Thanks everyone!

I hope you are feeling better by the time you leave for vacation. Can you do liquid protein drinks? Ensure never agrees with me, but I get a powdered plant protein that I blend with Almond milk and banana. Nutritionalist told me today to try pea milk to boost the protein content.

Can you go to your primary Dr and get fast tracked for a colonoscopy?

Unfortunately, protein drinks are expensive here. I would have to do rice or soy milk since I get anaphylaxis from tree nuts. Unfortunately, there is no fast tracking here. My family doctor is usually booked up so it's very hard to get in to see her. I will have to keep trying to get a hold of the GI's office. My family doctor would tell me to wait to see the GI. I think I'm going to only had solid food once a day in the morning and liquids the rest of the day because I have bad cramping and pain all the time.
