I bruise easily too. I have started to bruise a lot worse since CD happened to me. I wonder if there might be some kind of connection to the steroids?
How has Remicade been for you? I'm a little nervous to start. I spoke with my doctor today and he wanted to go ahead and sign me up for my first infusion but since I'm hoping to get an offer for a new job this week, I told him that I wanted to put off starting my infusions until I'm out of the old job and old insurance into the new job and new insurance. I worry that there might be a gap in coverage or something and I would have to pay for my infusions, if needed. That would BREAK me.
I'm nervous about
the possible side effects too. Have you had any side effects?
Currently 3 x per day 1000mgs Pentasa, Aciphex, Lortab, Ambien, Librax (for spasms) & VSL#3 (for probiotics) or activia yogurt, back on the prednisone (10mgs this week) and Entocort (9mgs).
Headed back down the CT, SBFT road for a potential SBO. Great.
