Hello Friends:
I was diagnosed with CD on March 25th, 2009 after a colonoscopy. I was immediately put on 2.4 g of Lialda. Have been regularly following the regimen. Today, after 4 months since diagnosis, I have a follow-up scheduled with my GI. What questions do I ask him?
During these 4 months on Lilada, my bloody stools have completely stopped. I have occassional and subdued pain (more like a sensation) in my stomach a few times a day. Otherwise, things are pretty okay. I also haven't noticed any food-related issues. I am careful about quantity, but most foods still agree with me. My weight is also constant.
My GI has not asked me to do any other tests like capsule endoscopy or X-ray. Should I ask him to do these anyway? Anything else, that I should ask him.
Please advice. Thanks!

Well ask the questions about the disease that you need to know, If your not having any problems right now after taking ur meds then your pretty good, as for other tests being done if your disease gets worse usually they do tests but if it gets better w/ meds no tests needed, they just have you continue w/ what your taking now. But everyone's Doctor is different so I wish you well!
