Saw my gut doc today....follow up from when I was in the hospital 3 weeks ago for GI bleeding.
And lemme say this first, they should understand that no matter how lucid you appear when they release you from the hospital, they should really tell someone who is cognizant what your
release-care is. After 4 days of good drugs, I was out of it when I signed out.
Anyhow......the bleed was somewhere in the small intestine, and in no way was caused by anything other than the diesease. The biopsies revealed (*shock*!) that I still have Crohns......duh........
No ulcers or anything that looked real bad, so no surgical remedies are indicated.
Im getting weaned off the Pred and am supposed to be taking Sulphalizine (sp?) 4 times a day.....I thought that crap was antibiotics, so I hadnt been taking it
oops. This is where having my wife there would have been a good thing....I woulda know to take them.
When I first visited this guy, I told him I wanted Remicade........doesnt look like Im gonna get it. He wants me to eat Pepto chewables to give me solid stools..........uh..........really? Thats weird.
And so Im back to feeling like I dont really have the disease......I can go to work, eat anything I want, go anywhere I want whenever I want......yet he tells me I still have it.
Whatever. I was actually almost pleased to be in the hospital b/c it was sort of like having the disease justified......"Now we're talking.....this is what having the disease is really like."
But now Im back to normal....feeling like an idiot and a liar when I tell people I have Crohns.
That is all,

Probably had it long before that.
Currently taking: Not what I asked for.

I would like a minor resection surgery...you know...just to see what it's all about and so I can say I had one.
