So still no idea if it's UC or crohn's, biopsies from the surgery next month will hopefully will hopefully give a clearer answer.
He's upped my asacol to 1200mg three times a day and now he's muttering about azathioprin. Now I'm panicking, this drug sounds hideous!
This time last year I was a 'normal' person, I feel like I've aged 10 years in the last 6 months.
I do wonder if he's just going through the motions, however he has referred me to a dietician to talk about low residue diets, has anyone found these helpful?
