I was first diagnosed with CD back in 2001, had two surgeries in 2003 and been fortuned enough to be in remission ever since.
Throughout the years, I never had problems with diarrhea but rather constipation, mostly due to the medications before the surgery. For the past 6 years, I have been on a low maintenance dosage (4 pills/day) of Lialda and just my thyroid medication so can no longer blame it on meds.
I have not been able to find anything over the counter or as prescription to help me get better bowl movement and yes... I tried all those home remedies and diet changes as well without any success. Every meds I have tried always causes major cramping and stabbing pain after 2-3 times of use. On top of that, since last year I am struggling now with hemorrhoids that come and go but as of late will not go anymore.
2 days ago, I had my routine colonoscopy and my doc found two ulcers at my incision side...great...now I am back on Entecort again.
Is there possibly anyone who has or had the same issue? I am frustrated, between the darn hemorrhoids, constipation and now my doc telling me that after 6 years in remission I am active again, I do not know what to do. Any suggestions would be REALLY appreciated.
