That is what is says on today's report!
I had my third colonoscopy in 5 weeks this afternoon. It seems I am hard to figure out just by talking. My colon was looking much better.
For now, I continue with the nightly enemas and I get to start to taper off the prednisone! This makes me so happy. I go down one pill every four days starting tomorrow.
I also get to start adding foods to my diet one at a time. I can't wait for this but I don't know where to start.
Right now I eat:
white bread with sunbutter
juices, ensure, tea and some gingerale because I love it and it is the only treat I was able to hang to
I can not eat bananas (they make me very ill) or any fish (allergies) and when I ate a little beef this week I didn't feel so well. I plan to add some spinach today. I want fruit and veg so bad!
Any ideas are welcome.
1996 diagnosed proctitis (during pregnancy, just months after I quit smoking)
Mar 3, 2009 diagnosed ulcerative colitis - it got my entire colon - severe
Fighting my first major flare up of UC (but I think my first UC flare up was at the end of 2006, 2 months after I quit smoking again)
60 mg prednisone (started at 30 but was doubled immediately) Mar 5/09
salofalk enemas = 5-aminosalicylic acid (mesalamine) added March 24/09 after second colonoscopy showed not enough progress ( previously managed proctitis with same stuff as suppository and then enema in 06)
