I'm sure the GI will be elated!!! lol! you keep him challenged at the very least.
What's the piece/article you read regarding lipase levels?
The PPI should have been continued I would think....you can purchase Zantac 150mg and take them twice a day. Nice to have a once a day pill, mind you. Can you not call for a repeat for the ones you took that the GP had you on...the pharmacy could probably do that for you.
Most people deal with GERD.....just they don't know it. don't you now feel normal??? heehee At least we can take something to help from our upper digestive tract to be eaten away....
I'm missing one point about
what's up with your UC...you have UC and you will flare. What are you confused about
But I think at the end of year one with the same doc, you should have another scope to make sure all is as it should be considering you're on meds.
You could ask him to send you for a pancreatic ultrascope or MRCP.
*Heather* Status: flaring...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
