Hey everyone...just wanted to let you all know i had my colonoscopy yesterday afternoon!!! i was very scared and started to cry haha..but i was fine..i was just freeked out about being put under! and plus i hadn't eaten since monday night and it was wednesday after 3 by the time they started! So anyways, we thought it would be UC, but it's mild to moderate chrons (I'm still not sure how different they are from each other though!). Its all over in my large intestine and some parts in my small intestine. Im on predinisone 40mg/1day for 2 weeks and then im gonna wean off of it and should be completely done with it in about 5 to 6 weeks. Does anyone think I'll have some major side effects in that short period of time?? My brother was on it for 2 months and didnt even gain any weight, so i was just wondering! Anyway..im on asecol...3 pills 3 times a day, and those suppositories...i forget the name haha..and thats it for now! the doc said once im off the prednisone he never wants to put me on it again and actually wants me to get this IV thing, i forget the name of it too haha, I think it starts with an "R." I would get it like every couple of months, so thats good! Anyway, thank god im gonna get help and i hope to god i feel better! I'm thinking im gonna start chating over on the chron's disease forum, just because, well that's what i have now! but i want to thank everyone for being so supporting and I wish the best of luck to everyone!!!!
