I have never really had any bleeding. I had it once about 2 weeks AFTER a colonoscopy. I'm not sure it it was related to that tho. He did do biopsies and says that it showed up as colitis and that there was no inflammation past the terminal illeum, which could more indicate Chrones.
I am just nervous with the thought that it could be Chrones I guess. I am right now having a bad flare. Does this mean that the Pentasa I'm on is not working anymore? Or could it mean I just need a quick dose of pred to get it back to where the Pentasa can keep it there?
I so hope they find a cure. Losing my colon scares the **** out of me, and theres not much left in there.
You guys are awesome!!
thanks everyone! There are a couple of you very similar to me, young and new to this.
It's a tough thing to swallow some days. I feel like I should be blessed to not have something much worse, but it still makes some days, especially when flaring, tougher than others.
Thanks guys for your feedback....hangin in there with the rest of ya!!
