SOOO I went to the GI today and he is making me repeat a colonoscopy because I have been on canasa and 4 asacol 2X/day and it has not worked for me at all. He increased me to 12 asacol a day (6 2x/day) and gave me a foam enema that is supposedly a topical steroid (?) Soo next thursdsay will be my 2nd colonoscopy in 2 years. When I went in today I told the doc about
my joint pain and he says when my disease is under control then my joint pain should subside. He is also making me do blood work because if the asacol doesn't work (which he doesn't think its going to) then the new one (cant remember the name) my blood has to be tested for something to see if it would be effective for me. Sooo now all together I will be taking 16 pills a day and the enema sooo it should be an even more exciting night. Hopefully this all will work!
