Hey guys,

Ive been on humira for 6 weeks and i am back to the big D again (5 times since i woke up 5 hours ago). My stool has been getting increasingly soft and loose over the last week. Now we're back to liquid. I never bleed and rarely produce mucus but this morning on my second trip to the loo i saw black blood clot type thing plus abit of black liquid in my poo. It was only a thimble full if that so not alot at all, but still unusual for me!
I'm not nauseous and havent had any typical pain although i do have some pain when i open my bowels as described in a previous post. I've been on everything barring cimzia and my GI has been mentioning surgery in every appointment for the last 18 months.
Im seeing my nurse next week, should i push for surgery next? thing is i dont think i'm 'bad enough' to warrent surgery. i mean i have hardly any pain, i'm still eating (although that is starting to slow down), i'm not throwing up.
I just dont know what to do, and i like going into appointments with plans and knowing the likely treatment ect!
