One week from my next Remicade and I get blood on the tp this morning. I've been feeling not quite so right down there for awhile but I thought it was partly my imagination. I guess all these illnesses have cause my inflammation to flair. Now I have to decide if I want to spend an extra trip and money to the GI whan I'm already going on the 29th or just deal with it. Not hurting too bad outside of the 15 minutes in the bathroom but it is quite mentally disrupting, I guess you'd say. URGHH!!!
 
And now what? Higher dose of Remicade? Humira? Surgery? So much to worry about.
Bad fissure Feb 2005, still have it January 2006. On Pentasa and Imuran 100mg. Some slight swelling and ulceration of terminal ileum. No other symptoms. Now on Remicade!

I am sorry your having problems and I understand how disturbing this is to you.  Some days it seems like one more thing will just push you over but I think you are going to be ok.  If you feel you can wait until the end of the month then go for it but always keep an open mind and if anything changes see your GI sooner.

I wish you sunshine on a cloudy day.  Gentle Hugs

AWWWW, Thanks, Kitt!

You know, as awful as it sounds, I'm almost relieved I finally saw blood. remicade has had me at 90-95 percent for a year but I've been hiding symptoms from my GI in order to avoid what i thought would be unneccessary probing. I just came to accept a moderate level of pain each morning since I know what REAL pain is like without Remicade. But maybe I shouldn't settle. Seeing a real sign that I'm not 100 percent will make me more likely to open up about all my symptoms (and how pooping is still WAY down the list o my favorite things to do!).
