I've had mild to moderate Crohn's for 34 years. Currently in the middle of a flare-up. I've never been to the hospital. I'm on Entocort, Colozal, Nexium, Flagyl and monthly B12 shots. Also have chronic anemia, B12 deficiency, peripheral neuropathy and leg pain. I've had a sphincterectomy for a fissure that wouldn't heal, a total hysterectomy and an appendectomy, but no Crohn's surgeries.
I've been having a whole lot of pain, cramping and diarrhea for the last 8 weeks. I'm very weak, dizzy and fatigued. My gastro is too booked to see me, but my primary physician is ready to admit me if I want to go. I don't want to go. I'm not sure when you're supposed to go. I'm still able to make it to work most days. I'm a hourly worker and sole support of my family, so time off is a tough option.
What do they do for you in the hospital? How do you know when it's time to go?
Any advice would be appreciated.
