Diagnosed with Crohns disease. Had partial intestines removed, many surgery. Currently in a flared condition. Suggestions?

I have crohns disease -diagnosed 40 years ago. had 1/3 intestines removed, enterocutaneous fistula in 2005, numerous surgeries....was treated w remicade and 6mp for 10 years+...no meds for last 2 years and NOW in a flare. I am currently NOT under any doctors care....and am now in a flared condition. Wondering if I should go to former Gastro surgeon (who works out of Cedars Sinai) for a colonoscopy and referal to an md who can get me on meds....OR see a Gastro closer to home who is not affiliated with a SUPER hospital. Cedars is about 50 miles away.Also, the crohns is covered by Workers Comp and I also have Medicare. Seems no docs want to contract w WC...so very difficult to get appointment. PLEASE HELP! THANKS!

TIS CONDITION DEVELOPS ACCORDING TO MY OPINION AND NEWER STUDIES WHEN A MAJOR FOOD PROTEIN DONOT SUIT YOU AND REACT WITH BODY PROTEINS TO CAUSE COMPLICATIONS
I ADVISE YOU TO CONSULT ALLERGEOLOGIST TO GET BLOOD SERUM TESTS FOR SPECIFIC ANTIBODIES FOR MILK WHEAT POTATO AND OTHER MAOR FOODS YOPU EAT DAILY GET THE FOOD SUBSTANCES WITHDRAWN FROM DIET TO GET RESULTS
IN MEAN TIME USE LOW PROTEIN DIET WITH PLENTY OF WATER WITH NON SPICY NON OILY AND NON SPICY FOODS AND SYMPATOMATIC TREATMENT AFTER CONSULTING GP
