Well, I hope it is not really square one. BUT - after having to stop Rowasa and Colazal almost 3 week ago because of side effects - I am back to cramping, bleeding, etc.
I saw the NP on Friday - she said I was doing so well but, of course, have to have some kind of medication to "finish" getting into remission and stay there. She suggested I use the Rowasa every other night and she woudl talk to gastro doc and call me Monday. Well, I used about 1/3 of enema Friday night and have been sick since. Had to take Imodium thismorning to stop the cramping and D. Also, blood is back - YUCK!! You know, I am too old to go through all this. Only kidding! I am thankful every day that I did not get this as young as most of you.
So, see what she says (doctors orders) on Monday. She has only mentioned the immunosuppressants as next but I don't want that because I need to have a knee replacment. Oh, life is so much fun sometimes!
