First of all, thanks for all the advice on helping me make it till my dr appointment with the most painful fissure- ever!  He said it was pretty bad, and that my spinchter (Sp?) muscles were very spasmatic!  So for 2 weeks I am on steriods- suppository version, nitro-glycerin jelly- which makes me very nervous, and I have lidocaine gel for pain.  If in 2 weeks its not better then I will have to see a Colon and Rectal Surgeon and go that route!  So I am hoping and praying these meds work, bc I don't want anymore surgeries!!
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
