I went to the ER on Tuesday night, got realeased last night. Anyways, my reason for going was I was having really bad abdominal pain and I thought the c-diff infection I had about a month ago had returned. I ended up having a colonoscopy while I was there (golytely+ not having eaten anything for 2 days prior= GOOD TIMES!!), and it showed that where I had my resection last December was all inflamed again, and now my colon is like completey covered in ulcers. I never had a problem with my colon before. They also found that my abdominal fistula is stemming out from where my resection took place (I figured that anyways).
So the GI's there decided to put me on cimzia as well as metho. I had my first metho shot there in the hospital because they wanted to monitor me incase I had a bad reaction, I had no problems other then my urine was a dark brown color about 5 hours after the shot, but they didnt see worried about it, and it only happened once.
Anyways, I guess they are trying to be pretty agressive with this, apparently they cannot figure me out. My GI and the other GI that did the scope said they were going to discuss my case at an IBD conference. My surgery for my fistula is now pushed back (boo!)
Has anyone else been on these 2 drugs combined? I know I cannot get pregnant on the metho, so I'll have to get on some kind of birth control asap.
