Just wanted to give you an update. As much as I treasured the 6 days of remissioin I had last week...I knew deep down it would come to an end. I was admitted to the hospital yesterday because of my proc***. My bathroom trips, blood and pain were getting too much for me. The rowasa and asacol was just not strong enought.
So they had me go for a ct scan....hate prepping that!!! Confirmed that the colitis hasn't spread. Wasted 3.5 hours prepping and waiting for test while in the ER. At least I got to watch Obama's special day!!! I am so proud of our Country. Though when everybody was chanting..."We can do it" or "Yes we can"....and I am sitting in the ER hooked up to drugs, etc...it was hard to believe.
Tomorrow they are scoping me. I have been put on 20mgs of iv steriods every 8 hours and i started 6MP - finally!! I should of done that months go but I was soo caught up in gettng pregnant and my IVF cycle.
ANYBODY WITH JUST PROCITITIS on 6MP?
Please keep me in your thoughts.
