Thanks Mike....he says my white blood cell count has been in the 11-1200 range, which is the high side of normal, so no worries there.
He said I am frustrating, lol because I just don't seem to go into remission. He kept all my medication the same and is going to check my SED rate again to see if it is still in the 70 range. He didn't increase my dose, however he isn't going to start to taper me off of the endocort for at least the next mo. I too thought perhaps I would increase the imuran.
The other test he is going to do is a CT scan. I haven't had one for a year and a half. I told him I would not do in barium emima....he said why....I said it made me sick and was painful....he said fair enough. He is not worried about
my rectum area, he is worried about
the lower small, upper large bowel....and it will give him a good shot of my liver. He told me I would have to still drink barium....I told him I would happily do that, just not the barium enima :)
Oh and I have strep throat....he checked me over due to my flu and my fam being sick....fun stuff:)
