I haven't posted a lot lately but have been reading carefully all of the posts that deal with 6mp and surgery.
At my doctor's appt. today, doctor mentioned upping 6mp to 125 then 150. He feels that if the meds don't work in a month then it is definitely time to consult with a surgeon.
I was really hoping and praying that this would be it... that 6mp would work but so far NO good.
As the moment gets closer the more nervous I get... Yes, I am tired of the pred and the Colazal, and the 6mp, and all of the crappy side effects... but yet really scared.
I have missed several days of work because I have been feeling horribly. I was trying to taper pred- down to 15mg, but I will have to back up to 20mg-
I have been to jpouch.org quite a bit and feel that I know what the surgery entails in theory, but is there really any preparation for this???
