So the scopes went well today... I finished my prep this morning but right before my procedure I still was passing some yellow cloudy liquid, I guess it was okay though. The doctor told me that when they first put the scope in it looked really diseased and he was worried but then as he went along it looked better he said. My esophagus was fine but a little tight (although it's really sore now) and he said it looked like the disease was just active up to the sigmoid colon but he took biopsies from all over in case the disease was just "quiet" in the rest of the colon, since he could see scarring and evidence of UC throughout the whole thing.
Afterward though I woke up and they were like "pass some air and I can give you something to drink" and my stomach really hurt so I had to let some go (luckily it was quiet, haha) but I was afraid to because when I woke up it already felt ..uhm, wet, and I was afraid that maybe it was liquid stool that didn't get passed, but figured it was probably just KY or something from the scope. Finally, they let me get up to the bathroom and I sat on the toilet and blood just poured out... It seemed like a whole lot and there was a lot on the toilet paper but the nurse didn't seem too concerned since it didn't really turn the water red or have clots. I'm sure I had to have passed more than a tablespoon (they said if it was that much to call the doctor or go to the hospital) since I left though so I'm a little worried I guess but it's hard to gauge in water. I'm thinking if I'm still bleeding a lot tomorrow I'll call. I'm feeling better now that I'm laying down and have gotten some of the air out and some food in so I guess that's good.
Just thought I'd share the 'news'... Doctor said no prednisone or anything (yay!!) Just the Lialda and probably suppositories or enemas which we'll talk about
at my appointment on the 18th.
I'm gonna go take a nap now
