HI! I am new to the state and looking for a Gastroenteroligist (triangle area but am willing to drive anywhere in state) who will consider alternative treatments. Had great success with a previous gastroenteroligist who was happy with my treatment from my integrative primary care physcian. But my new gastrolenterologist simply said there is no proof other treatments work and wants to prescribe biologics even though I have been symptom free for 1.5 years (no colonoscopy yet). Seeing a provider to do colonscopy for cancer screening.

These days, after eating and drinking, I will have symptoms of bloating and abdominal pain. After that I would be so bloated for a whole day that I would feel afraid to eat.
