Thank you all for your concern. I told my Dr today that I finally accept that I have CD and relized that I can't control it on my own any more. He put me back on the Pentasa 2 tabs 3x aday as well as Entocort 2 a day. That is new to me. Kinda concerned about that one. It says it can cause nervousness, dizziness, n/v, d/c among others. I already have all that don't need to add to it. I go in on Wed for a small bowell follow thru test to look for stricture???
lil-momma: I can't beleive your insurance co. dropped you. I sure hope you can do something about that. I would not be able to cope with no insurance with all the meds, trips to ER, drs appts. etc. I feel so bad for you all. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
bektold: Thank you for that bit useful information. I will look into that. What I was mainly referring to my INS not covering was a medication I needed, IM bentyl. When I have a flare I'm vomiting so bad with D, I can't keep anything in or down. My insurance co refused to pay for this, even after many letters etc.
Thanks again, Kay
DX with CD of the TI in 2004 with partical obstruction. Anemic, constant elevated ESR. Constant abd. pain. Tried Pentasa in the past and had just as many flare-ups on as off so I quit, but need to get back on. Meds: Vit B-12 shots monthly, zinc, multi vit, Vit E and soon Pentasa and iron again.
