AWWWW, Thanks, Kitt!
You know, as awful as it sounds, I'm almost relieved I finally saw blood. remicade has had me at 90-95 percent for a year but I've been hiding symptoms from my GI in order to avoid what i thought would be unneccessary probing. I just came to accept a moderate level of pain each morning since I know what REAL pain is like without Remicade. But maybe I shouldn't settle. Seeing a real sign that I'm not 100 percent will make me more likely to open up about all my symptoms (and how pooping is still WAY down the list o my favorite things to do!).
Bad fissure Feb 2005, still have it January 2006. On Pentasa and Imuran 100mg. Some slight swelling and ulceration of terminal ileum. No other symptoms. Now on Remicade!
