The GI nurse told my mom that the biopsies & footage looked 10 times better than the one 6 months ago(funny because this scope showed a lot of inflammation/ulcers & the last scope showed none of that). We're going to keep on keeping on with the Humira & after about
two more shots I should be feeling like my old self. He is putting me on Sulfazine probably though instead of the Apriso to see if it will eliminate the joint pain. The GI is still going to prescribe me rectal suppositories for the inflamation. I'm very happy but...
If struggling to keep my weight up, stabbing stomach pains, 5+ bowel movements a day, debilitating joint pain, having my rectum be so swollen it closes up & occasional bloody stools is remission than remission freaking sucks!
Despite my clean out, the biopsies showed I had undigested food in my stomach. Which explains my gastroparesis like issues. Apparently he doesn't think it's significant enough. Oh, well.
