I had my scope yesterday even tho I wanted to cancel because my 19 month old son managed to fall and break his leg the day before I had to start the prep and I knew we'd be spending a great deal of time trying to get a doc to get him out of the splint and into a cast.
I have small patches of UC through my entire large intestines they said. Not bad but annoying. I honestly had to look really hard to see most of them so it's not all that bad which is probably why I didn't feel I was in complete remission but didn't feel like I was flaring either. He said he's never tried the LDN so he won't try it now. (grrr)
He told me he wanted to try me on Remicade but needed to check with insurance, my nephrologist and the company to see if it's safe for my kidneys to handle. However he said to my husband something about
another injection that he didn't say to me. . .something starting with an H . . . any ideas what that could be? My husband was juggling a toddler with a splint so he wasn't paying 100% attention to the doctor when they gave him my results. . . I can't blame him really.
