Okay - life with UC was going well. Saw my new GI on the 13th and was doing SO well.
Then... I had an attack of some sort this weekend - I'll blame it on my GERD - and I couldn't keep much down until yesterday. So, I was feeling pretty rotten - and since I couldn't hold anything down - no meds were taken. Then last night, the cramps came :( I haven't been in so much pain since my initial flare in '03. If I were able, I would have gotten up to get my darvocets. Finally the pain subsided and I slept - well!
Now, after a crampy bathroom run, the dreaded red showed it's face - sob, sob, sob!!!
My scripts from my new GI for Canasa and Rowasa are at the house 30 miles away. But I don't have a choice in this matter. I must drive home, get them, take the to the pharmacy and HOPE they have them in stock - and then possibly work on my paid holiday on Friday to make up some time... (I got in late yesterday because I didn't sleep the night before because even saliva wouldn't stay down.)
Right now it seems more mucousy, so I am placing all my hope in the nightly rowasa and daily (or twice daily) canasa.
I really want to stomp around my office cursing. But it wouldn't help anything :(
Thank goodness you all understand!!!
