they said they wanted my medical records faxed. All my GI records, Kidney and Primary.
will call to confirm they got the info.
I would like to make an appointment with a Gastroenterologist. Enclosed are my medical records. At this time I am on azathioprine while tapering prednisone. I am not sure if the azathioprine is working for me and my next step seems to be remicade. I flared at 5mg of prednisone last taper (may be b/c I took 2 aspirin, don’t know for sure), then went back up to 40mg and tapered, today am at 20mg. At this time I am not taking 5ASA’s because they may have caused my kidney disease. Also, because of my kidney disease My GI and Nephrologist may switch me to Cellcept instead of Azathioprine.
I would like to consult with one of your Gastroenterologists, because I want to understand more about Cellcept for ulcerative colitis (avoid flaring) and if azathioprine fails me and remicade does, my next option may be surgery.
If I can provide any additional information please let me know.
