I had asked for some info probably a month ago here. Since then I have changed GI's. Had a Colonoscopy, a CT (I had to drink stuff that lights up your insides)
My GI put me on Entocort 9mg a day. Which helped a lot. He also started me on Flagyl, but not until I got all my testing done.
Blood work, BM test all came back normal. The Scope revealed Crohn's on the right colon. I haven't got the results from the Biopsy yet.
I go the 22nd for a Upper GI. I am now on Predisone, Imurane, Flagyl, & various OC meds. I feel better now than I have for the past 3 months. I haven't had a bloating episode since I started the Entocort. I am so thankful for that.
I do have a couple questions.
Instructions for my UGI says nothing to eat or drink after midnight.
How do I take my meds? Predisone upsets my stomach if I don't take it with food.
My GI put me on a low fiber diet. I usually eat a bowl oatmeal or cream of wheat every morning. I make them thinner than I like it so it's not as hard to digest.
Should I stop eating this, or is this little bit of fiber ok?
Crohn's since 1997, treated with Sulfasalazine, Imuran, & Predisone.
In Remission for 11 years with no medication.
2009 Crohn's returns, Current Medication 40mg Predisone, 100mg Imuran, 1000mg Flagyl

Blessed & Thankful it's not worse....
