Thank you all for you king words and support, as always it is much appreciated. My doctor called and said that my blood counts actually are not looking to bad, I'm little anemic, but not too bad. My hemgoblin was 11.4 and hemocrit 33, for me that is really, really good. So, if there's a bleed it's really small at this point. Still haven't been able to do the stool test yet, so don't know the results there yet.
My liver enzymes were way up from 2 wks ago though, which is most likely from the Imuran. It has jumped from 42 to 69 in 2 weeks, so they are concerned about
that. They are trying to get me into my GI doctor asap to get everything checked out.
It probably is time to stop sheltering my daughter, old habits are hard to break sometimes. Also, I am not one who likes to burden others with my issues, if anything I tend to take their issues on too. Wrong thing to do I know, especially in my situation. That is why these websites are such a outlet for me, here I can speak about
my issues and not feel guilty. I guess because I am talking to others who can relate to me and no one here is going to look at me and say "oh well, she looks fine!" I know you all can relate to what I am saying.
As far as GI issues go, I've always had them, stomach pain and such, literally I remember back to a very young child, before starting school complaining to my mother and her taking me to the doctor for it. It's something I've always lived with. Sigh. I can handle the pain, it's the bleeding I am not to keen on, don't want anymore surgeries.
Thanks again for listening ladies.
