I have an appointment to see my GI in one week, and would like your help as to what to ask him. I'm currently on 9mg Entocort, and 6 pills of Salofalk. I'm doing OK in general, but I still have my bad D days. I think that Entocort has not been my miracle drug (I've been on it for 2 months). I know I have a stricture in my TI, but last time I saw him he told me that surgery was out of the question at least for now, and to tell you the truth I don't feel that sick, although there are 1-2 days every week when I feel nausea, having a little D etc.
I will have blood tests on Monday, because he wants to see them, and my question is should I tell him to give me more "heavy" drugs? Or since life is OK right now, I should just stick with the current ones? Oh! I forgot, 4 months ago my blood tests were excellent, but I was still experiencing symptoms. He told me since blood tests are OK, there is no serious inflammation active. It could be IBS. Go figure....
