73monte: I don't want to argue with you, but I got that diagnosis from several different doctors (I'm all about
second opinions). It's called Inflammatory Bowl Disease which encompasses BOTH Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Feel free to google it or ask your Dr. about
I am on the same page as you. I never want to be on steroids again. I've voiced that to my GI and we both agree that steroids are a firm NO. I opted out of biologics. Thank goodness I went into remisison right after that decision. I'm sure there will come a day that I will need them. But, until then, I don't want them.
I will get to my GI as soon as I get on insurance. I left a message for his nurse, so hopefully she will be calling me back today.
