Last night I had really bad pains. It was so bad and has not been like this in a long time. I started with Aleve, then I took a bath, tried a heating pad and eventually gave in and took a norco- still not much help though. This morning it is a little better but I am still worried something is going on. It is all on my lower left side and spreads to my back.
Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa,
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hosptial stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis and almost didn't make it.
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
