So I went to the hospital on Monday and little did I know that I was going to stay there for 3 days :S

my scope was scheduled on Tuesday and I am never going through this stuff again oh my god this was the worst prep ever :(
the colonoscopy and endoscopy where fine would do that a hundred times if is did not have to prep.

After the scope my doc told me that I was not going home and that he had order a enteroclysis and a sonogram of my liver since the liver values where to high and he did not know what was going on.

The sonar was no problem but the enteroclysis was terrible(I have done this before) but this time I could not drink the barium and I only managed 400 ml of 900 ml
then I started to vomit :S

The radio doc said he could see something in my small intestines that looked like Crohn's but my GI is sure that I have UC.

So now I am waiting for the rest of the tests and will talk to them again on 6th of July about my liver.

I am supposed to rest and take it easy until then. They took a test for hep A B C and something else.

I am curious about the liver values and them being higher than usual do you get this and is it serious or just some random thing?

So it has not been fun 3 days for me but the week ends with a dog show so I am happy :)

I know when I was on Imuran, the doctor ran liver tests all the time. I'm not sure if that would apply to remicade or other medications, but it's possible. The liver seems to be sensitive to biologics, which is why they base the amount of Imuran you take in comparison to how much you weigh, etc. I wonder if one of the meds you're on is causing some sort of issue. Good luck!
