     Went back to my surgeon on Tuesday.  He told me I didn't have an abscess, which I thought I had, but a hematoma, which (so he said) is quite common after surgery.  That is what he drained in the office.  Thank GOD he didn't have to stick that anuscope up me again smhair .  I am FINALLY starting to feel somewhat better.  I believe the high dose of Cipro and then switched to sulfa and Flagyl made me feel like yuk.
     Since the pains in my back were waking me up during the night, my family doctor wanted me to have an MRI.  Found out that I have metal staples in me on Tuesday, so no thanks to the MRI.  My family doctor assured me that it would be ok, but I think not.  Last night I slept much better and we'll see how things go from here.  I believe it is either arthritis (rampant in my mom's side of the family) or still was the after effects of the antibiotics.

Came over to this board to see how you are doing and say HI!  Sure hope you begin to feeling yourself.  I surely don't want to have to consider surgery after reading your "problems" along the way.
Anyway, wishing you the best.  I am still in remission - saw the NP the other day and she said watch for symptoms like little blood/mucous/left side discomfort and use my rectal meds accordingly.  Hoping to continue with what I consider "symptoms I can live with).
No knee surgery because my husband is not very well.  He had pneumonia and has a bad heart.  We have to deal with life-threatening - nothing else around here!
Senior - diagnosed with proctosigmoiditis - 6/2008 Cannot tolerate mesalamines including rectal meds, etc.
Prednisone for about 5 months - tried 6 MP with no help.
No prescriptions now except for Cortifoam and anusol about once a week. Now treating only with Imodium and Pepto Bismal and below....
Probiotic Align, Prilosec for GERD, Gas-X, vitamins, Calcium/D
Tylenol for knees and arthritis.
