My doctor at the Lahey Clinic retired. I have a gastroenterologist who I saw at Dartmouth who can do a scope of my pouch. His name is Dr. Levine.
I wonder if I should have a colon and rectal surgeon do the scope like I have in the past. Does it matter? It sounds like Dr. Levine knows what he's doing.
Also, for some reason Dr. Coller let me get away with no prep before my scopes. Dr. Levine told me I have to do a liquid diet and other prep.
I'm delaying the scope although I'm due for one. I have a hard time getting used to the thought of someone else looking up my butt after twenty years of Dr. Coller doing the job. I worry too about going with Dr. Levine because he's not exactly young.
