The colonoscopy Dr. messed up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!! I have Proctosigmoiditis.
I just had a visit for the GI (not my doctor) he brought the results in from my colonoscopy and he showed me the pictures. The picture said proctosigmoiditis....but at the bottom he wrote I had "left-sided colitis".
So the same questions:
1). can you use rectal meds for protosigmoiditis?
2). is this the start of full blown pancolitis?
Also i spoke to the dr. about be released. I have yet to have a bowel movement today --they said its prob. from the pain pills. Anyway, I will no matter what be released on 60 mgs of pred tapered quick to 40mgs and then a slow taper down from there. PLUS my 12 asacol pills and 6MP at 50mgs.
Does that sound like a good plan to you all?
