Well, I finally know why I've had an over abundance of mucous and blood. Although I've done this test 2 or 3 times over the past 6-months, I tested positive for C-Diff. Now they can fix the problem right? And a question for the females out there - do you get fissures or fistulas in your vagina? I've got what feels like a fissure at the very least. I've had this 3 or 4 times in the past and it always gets better with a course of Flagyl. Just was wondering if I'm the only one. I'm hoping now I can begin to feel better. It's been a really sucky past 6-months.
I hope all the rest of you are doing better also.
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
Current Medications for the Crohns: Humera 40mg injections every other week, Imuran 150mg, Levsin, Welchol 625mg, Prednisone 10mg(started weaning off, now going back up in dosing).Canesa suppositories, Calcium, Acidophilus & Potassium
Previous Medications I've been on: Asocal, Pentasa, Flagyl, Cipro & Entocort
Misc: I recently joined a local crohns disease support group that meets monthly. It has been great talking to and meeting other people who share the same disease. I hope to continue gaining insight through this forum as well.
