Thanks. I'm still having a rough time and my doctor wants to also test for Chron's and ulcerative colitis. Nothing would surprise me at this point.

Well, had my colonoscopy today and the other boot dropped, so to speak. He thinks I have Chron's (there are discontinuous ulcerations and edema throughout the colon) althought it could be UC. Biopsies should help determine which, and I also have an order for a blood test.

 

I'm so tired of the pain, nausea and fatigue and beyond exhausted from trying to find something I can eat without doubling over and running for the bathroom. I'm on a number of drugs now that hopefully will start helping to calm things.

Thanks. It's been a roller coaster lately. I was put on prednisone for the short term but I couldn't tolerate the side effects for more than 3 days. I'm hoping the longer term drug is able to kick in fast. I finally did have a relatively good day today and even got out into the sunshine for a couple of hours. Hoping this sticks and I don't do my normal one step forward, two steps back!

I really hope the long term drug works well for you.  Take things easy.  Good luck in healing.

 

All the best to you.
