Well I had my visit last thursday after a 2 month wait and I have some mixed results. First off plan for an entire day event. I went up at 1 and did not leave till 6 and only had blood drawn. The blood draw though Im glad was done, I have only ever had blood taken to see if imuran was messing with my white blood count. They ordered 9 test but I don't remember which ones. Im also suppose to go back up for a ct tomography on the 13th of this month. Ive had a ct done before but my worry is I do so bad with the liquid you have to drink. The first cup came right back up last time. She also ordered a stool sample which I could not produce there so Im suppose to do it at home and drive it back within 4 hours which is a hour short of how long it takes me to get there. So Im going to hold off on that for a while to get the results back from the other tests. I started to feel extremly crappy the first week of december. At that time I had just went done to 5 mg of predisone and was a week late on my Humira thanks to the insurance company. My gi upped the pred back to 20mg and I started the the same day I started the HUMIRA again. Well here it is a week after my pred is back down to five and 2 days away from my HUMIRA. I have no I dea what is work. Are they both doing a little? I don't know. And to top if off I felt great up until sunday then no appetite yesterday and went home early today at work cause of how I felt. Ive been on the couch since 1p.m. If thats not enough I woke up to a accident in my pants last night at 3am, the first time this has ever happen. Im so lost.
