Oy, Juliah and Erin - my heart is killing me reading your posts! Big hugs to you both, I cannot BELIEVE what you are both going through!
Erin I am SO glad you are getting a second opinon - your doctor sounds a little fishy to me not giving you the full diagnosis from the get go. I am concerned about the fact you are still having bloody BM's - did you call the doctor today re: that?
I would post on the Chron's forum to get as much advice you can get in regards to diets and dealing with this. I went there for Remicade advice a while back, everyone was very nice.
Take care = I hope everyone has a relaxing, PAIN FREE holiday weekend!
As well with me too.
ow! that sounds awful, of course, walking pushes it out as well...doh!
Well, when the kids are sick with the big D - the doctor tells me to keep them on the BRAT diet = Banana's Rice Applesause and Toast. No dairy, no roughage, no nothing else except pedialyte...I wonder with chron's if that'll (brat diet) help calm the bowels down as well during a flare?
I hope you feel better soon.....that is a horrible disease you are enduring...I hope you find some relief very soon.
