I am so in love with my doctor! He is so freaking attentive and on top of things! And get this he told me that I dont ever have to wait for an appointment and that I can call him anytime if my symptoms are worsening...
So I go in and describe my symptoms and explain my stool size and the pain and the frequency of BM's and he immediately says "lets do a sigmoidoscopy...I know you have a colonoscopy scheduled for the 18th but I think we need to take a look today!" I was so grateful for this. He took me in the room and scoped me and took biopsies. This was the first time I was awake when they did this. I didnt want to watch but eventually opened my eyes and was amazed at what I saw...Just amazed. I had a few polyps, and there was deffinitley inflamation present. He didnt see a stricture but did mention that its pretty tight in there because of the inflamation. and he saw a few ulcers but they were not bleeding which was good.
With the pain I have been experiencing I thought I was going to see a tumor or blockage or something cancerous but no sign of any of that stuff...what a relief mentally!
I asked about a resection and remicade, and he said he doesnt see either of those as a option for me as the crohns is only moderate and is not severe. He was very confident that he can have me under control with Entecort and flagyl in a few weeks...He then wants to transition me back onto 6mp for maintnance.
You know I am just grateful that he has a vision and a plan of action.
