I went to my family doctor this morning and he said even though I don't feel up to par, that he thought I was doing fantastic considering the surgery I went through, my age and all the medications I was on prior to surgery. He said my extended use of prednisone took a toll on my system and it will most likely take a year for me to get my strength back.
He ordered extensive blood work....CBC with Diff/platelets, Comp. Metabolic Panel (14), Hepatic function Panel, Lipid Panel, TSH, Vitamin B12 & Folate, Serum Cortesol. This should get to the bottom of things.
Tomorrow I go for the MRI of abdomen and pelvis with and without contrast. The surgeon wants to make sure he isn't missing anything. I continue to pass mucus. The pressure has gone away since he suctioned out my anus last Tuesday.
BOY...I will be sooooo glad when all these issues are resolved. Before UC, I went to the doctor's office once a year, if that!!!
