Little Update here.
1. had a reaction to Humira and was taken off the drug by my MD. Last injection was Oct 1
2. Finally off Pred!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Been off since the end of sept. I flared quickly afterwards but used flagyl and cipro and have been feeling good since.
3. Since I was off the Humira, Pred, and antibiotics I gave LDN another shot.
Day 1 pain went from 8 to 3
Day 2 no pain and stools became semi formed.
Day 3 1 formed stool. 100% asymptomatic.
Day 4 I actually had to take a stool softner
Day 5 feeling great with tons of energy.
My GI was pissed off when I told him about the LDN, he just said its probabaly a placebo effect. So what if it is I said??
tomorrow I go for a pill endo just because it was already scheduled. No dummy pill just the real thing. If it gets stuck I go to surgery. Either way if there is a stricture its gotta be fixed sometime.
Ill let you know how it goes.
