I just finished reading the phos soda post and I wish mine could have been that easy. This is the worst pred I've ever had to do. I started this afternoon with 4 ducolax laxatives, then an hour later a bottle of mag phosphate and then 328g of mirlax in 64oz of gatorade. Plus nothing but clear liquids all day today. I have been bloated, cramping, and having pain all evening long with the constant gushing. I'm actually sitting here in a diaper cause it hits me so hard I can't get out of the chair fast enough. What a nightmare. I'm wondering how long after the scope before they change my meds. They are not working and that is the whole reason for the scope that and being new to the area and this being a new doc. I wish they would start me on a new med tomarrow. He did promise to get me off the prednisone and I am so looking forward to that. I've been talking to my husband because I know every time I've had one in the past the Versed makes it so I don't remember what the doc says afterwards. I'm really hoping humira is an option. I don't want to sit for 3+ hours for an infusion and possibly have the side effects of remicaide when I can give myself an injection at home and go on about
my day. I don't think my job would appreciate me driving a hour and half each way and then add the infusion time every so often. Anyway my husband does plan on telling them they have to do something quick. I have been miserable for 3 months now and working. All I can do is work and sleep and I have pain every day and don't feel I can take my pain medication (which this doctor doesn't want me on) while working so I go all day in pain then come home take pain medicine and go to bed because I am exhausted. I'm rambling I know, I'm just trying to get this last glass down and then I know it will be an hour or 2 if I'm lucky before it will get through me. So if your out there tonight and have nothing else to do, I'll be on here for the next couple of hours. Post a reply talk about
anything and I'll reply back. Thanks for listening to my whining!
