Thanks CrohnieToo... Yes, it's the trial I am nervous about... The only reason to be nervous of the test is that its results will be part of what make or break my enrollment. All of the other tests I have done before I know where I fall for results. This one is new to me, so it'll be the first ever of these results and I hope they fall within the desired range (whatever that is - I think just a "positive" test).
The trial is making me quite anxious, moreso than I've felt before other trials. I guess because I had to give up my budesonide suppositories and they are what I believe have kept me out of the hospital. And, now I also have to stop my pain meds, which have allowed me to live a fairly "normal" life (after the first few hours of each day, that is), They help to, obviously, control the constant achy pain in my rectum as well as slowing the guts which provides me security to go through my day. All I can say is... I HOPE I do not get a placebo... :-( My entry appointment is Monday with a colonoscopy on Wednesday 6/15. I hate that, too. Boo! I do want to try the new drug, so it's worth it, but... I'm a bundle of nerves waiting for the next week! I just want it over.
