The last couple weeks I have been having annoying pains in my stomach; mostly right below my bellybutton, but it does happen all over. My back is also hurting. It seems feel like HUGE gas bubbles, that like blow up...then go back down, like waves. If I roll from side to side while in bed the pain shifts to whatever side Im on....so Ive been sleeping on my back which I hate! Also pain when eating, not HORRIBLE blockage pains, but the same gas bubble feeling. My stools are bright yellow, and hardly any of my food is being broken down when they pass. I had C Diff not too long ago, I was treated and it went away. I also had to come off of 100mg of Imuran back down to 50mg because of nausea. I did a small Prednisone burst a couple weeks ago, got no relief. Wondering if the C Diff is back, the yellow stools give me that impression, or if its the Imuran....or just something else all together. I have a GI appointment on the 7th, I was thinking about
asking him if I could get a colonoscopy just to see what the heck is going on in there, I havent had one since my last resection surgery in Sept. Any thoughts?
Saw the GI yesterday, had some blood work and stool sample tests. C-diff is back, he put me on Flagyl for a month, and also put me on a good probitoic, he said the antibiotics im taking wont kill this probiotic, and if I wish he will continue to prescribe it to me for as long as Id like. Sucks its c-diff but glad Im getting treatment for it. He said you could get it from eating meats (never knew that!) He also told me it cant be killed by freezing or cooking the meat either. I also learned that most babys get c-diff but usually never get sick from it, the parents do from changing diapers. He was actually ON TIME too, usually Im waiting 2-3 hours in the office...so nice. lol.
