I am Irish.  I have red hair, my name is Erin, I love green.  Why do I have to have a test on my favorite day?!?!?!
My biopsises showed no colon involvement yeah yeah yeah yeah happy dance.  However, there were multiple ulcerations in my ileum.  Hmmm I guess I was ignoring something huh.  I have to have a CT 3/17 so my new GI can see what is happening with my insides and why they are twisted.
Please cross your fingers that he does not suggest the "big" meds.  I am still quite happy with how I feel even with some minor flare ups.  I just don't want imuran or any anti TNFs.  I just don't.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

Maybe they can color the CT contrast green for you! I'm sorry you have to have a test, but better to get things figured out sooner than later. And the corned beef goes on sale on 3/18, so you can save money too!

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

Wishing you the luck of the Irish with your scope:) Make sure you have green on you somewhere or your GI may pinch you:) On a more serious note, I hope you don't have to go on the stronger drugs. Hugs~
