Time for an update. Okay, so I combined Tang with my golightly. It made for some interesting BM colorment, but with only yellow dye #5 and 6 it was safe to drink plus the flavor allowed me to drink the nasty stuff rather easily. Granted I made the Tang very very strong and also had it near ice cold.
The straw trick worked decently and I did try the apple juice thing too. Both seemed to be sort of effective in getting the stuff down.
So, as far as the results go the GI who did my procedure said that I had inflamation throughout, though he did not say specifically if it was pancolitis. I have a follow up on the 10th that will allow me to get some more answers.
They decided to put me on 6MPs since my reaction to 5ASAs was so bad. That and they've bumped me back up to 40mg of Prednisone. The Dr said I might be steroid dependent. Such is life.
I'm not looking forward to the weekly blood screening as the VA hospital I go to is a good trip away and the gas prices suck.
Anyhow, that was my monday, how was yours?
