1 Week Into Mc Therapy

Posted by moosemalibu, 11 December 2014 - - - - - - · 2,099 views
entocort, microscopic colitis
I am a week into my Entocort steroid therapy for microscopic colitis. I can say that I have no discernible side effects from this drug. It has slowed down my bowel significantly. I am no longer running to the bathroom 8-10x/day. I probably go about half that amount now. The quality of the bowel movements has improved but it varies throughout the day. I ha...

Budesonide For Mc

microscopic colitis, entocort and 2 more...
I saw my GI yesterday. He and I agreed to start me on Entocort EC/Budesonide medication. It is a slow release 3mg capsule that is not dissolved by the stomach pH and instead gets broken down and absorbed in the intestines. It is supposed to have a local effect versus systemic and is considered safer than prednisone. I will be on 9 mg dose once a day for 2...

Yup... I Have Microscopic Colitis

Posted by moosemalibu, 01 December 2014 - - - - - - · 4,016 views

I just got the message from my doctor that I have microscopic colitis. I had a colonoscopy last month with biopsies. The colonoscopy prep was not nearly as bad as what people have told me it would be. Honestly the best part of my experience was the prep. The scope was not so great - I woke up several times during the procedure - I was only sedated with mi...

Colonoscopy

Well... my diarrhea has continued and not improved despite resolution of most of my other celiac symtoms. I'm going in to be tested for microscopic colitis next month. I just want to have a normal phucking bowel movement. It's been soo long I don't even remember what one looks or feels like! Hoping for answers.

I Went Camping For The 2Nd Time Since Diagnosis

Posted by moosemalibu, 11 February 2014 - - - - - - · 1,073 views

Well... my boyfriend is a HUGE 4x4 truck enthusiast. He has 2 rigs that are specifically for off roading purposes. Consequently we take these rigs to remote places and drive over lots of rocky terrain. He has rock crawler and a prerunner or something like that. It is very confusing keeping all the classes straight. It's his hobby that I support but not qu...

Celiac Rage

anger, frustration, rage
If there was such as thing as Celiac Rage-- I've got it today.

I am still healing my bowel from diagnosis last year. I thought I was making progress when I had a normal stool this morning. But then I had BM after BM after BM. And each one got progressively worse. Can I not be a human cesspool of Poop all the GD time? I just want one normal BM. I want it...

Am I Being Selfish And Inconsiderate?

Posted by moosemalibu, 23 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1,444 views

So... a little background about my personal life. I live with my boyfriend in a rented house and we split bills and rent 50/50. We've been together for over a year now and he is, in my eyes, 'the one.' I've had several failed relationships and would like to think I have finally figured out what I want from a partner in my 10 years of dating experience.

So here is the break down from my blood test results

TTG IgA Antibody: 74.0 U/ml (8-20-13); 12.0 U/mL (12-11-13)

Interesting to see this decrease for both becuase in October I did 3 weeks of gluten challenge. I'm shocked my body is able to...

Frustration. All I Want Is To Be Normal

Posted by moosemalibu, 09 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1,308 views

I figured it was time to vent through a blog post. Because I don't think anyone wants to keep hearing the same thing over and over again like a broken record.

Here is a little background...

In December of 2009 I slipped on an icy driveway before work and fractured my right kneecap into 3 pieces and dislocated it up and into my quadriceps muscle. I had s...
