phobeskye86~ That's a bummer. I am sorry about that. I had a "lesion" as I was told it was, which I am sure was an abscess. Luckily it went away, then returned & has currently MIA again, thank goodness. It was so painful. I am sorry you have to deal with that.
Anyway, here's the thing... I was diagnosed with IBD in Feb 08 after a positive SBFT. Then the back & forth between you have IBD, we aren't sure if it's CD or what... then being told, hmmm... must be IBS since the last c-scope was clear & my labs never have a high CRP or ESR. Just high WBC. Currently U of M has my diagnosis as lymphocytic colitis. So I get ignored. Well, at least not taken seriously.
Anyway, maybe I have a really mild case or what have you, but since I have had such a fight trying to get treatment, and not much luck or help, I have decided that doctors just aren't for me. This whole charade is just overwhelmed me a bit too much. It's strained my life, financially, emotionally, which in turn effects my family. I just can't take it anymore. I am not strong enough to keep pushing for treatment. It's been over 2 years of feeling like hell & it just gets worse & worse. What started with weight loss & more frequent bowel movements with a little blood has turned into lesions (& now this new "hemmy"?) growing on my bum & vomiting & diarrhea & constipation & intense pain & exhaustion & headaches & catching ever illness that passes through.... etc., etc..
Anyway, I can't keep bugging or go to the doctor. It's not helping. It's too expensive. I am too tired.
So, that being said, I need to find a way to feel somewhat better. If I can't treat the cause, I need to treat the symptoms. Why won't this hemmy go away? Is there some magical treatment I am missing?
Live for today, for tomorrow you might just get hit by a semi.
