My doc called a few minutes ago - my pathology work came back and showed that my colon disease is "moderate" and "active." I was like - uh, DUH. Sorry to be ugly, just had to share. I am now on Prednisone and had my Remicade treatment yesterday. I thought we saw this during the colonoscopy. I tried to act like this was new ground-breaking information. I'm also grouchy b/c we let ourselves get down to one 9-pack of TP in the house. How could that have happened????? tongue

LOL! I got down to about six rolls of TP a couple of weeks ago. Almost had an anxiety attack - even though they were double rolls and we'd probably be good for a few more WEEKS. Wow, this disease can sure make you have some weird thoughts... Who ever would have thought I'd be obsessed with TP? To prove it, several months ago we had a thread on our favorite types of TP...

I'm sure your doc did see that during the c-scope. Just now the pathology report of the biopsies confirmed it.

I hope you're feeling well after your Remi!

It took me getting angry several times with my wife for her to understand that the cheap toilet paper she kept getting was killing my rearzone. We now purchase soft TP.

Ah tell me about it... Running low on TP is bad, or out of it is even worse!! One day I noticed we were OUT somehow- I thought we had more but we didn't. So my boyfriend went to Wal-Mart while I was at work, but left the TP in the car. When I got home, I rushed to the bathroom, only to find no TP! So I was panicking and I was like "Where did you put it?!?" So he went to the car and came back empty handed and said it wasn't there!!! So I was tearing through the house, the cabinets, and it was no where to be found and I was seriously ready to have an accident and was in tears. Then my boyfriend went back downstairs to the car; turns out it was under the seat. Duh!
