I went back for my follow-up. I ended up on pred for a week because of another problem I was having with a shoulder muscle.
GI Dr feels that I will flair back up as soon as I am done with the pred especially since I am going to try to quit smoking again next week. So I agreed to try Lailda cause the last flair is still fresh in my mind. I am concerned about taking this because I don't want to tax my liver. I am terrified of getting PSC or PBC as my mother has PBC.
Something I am taking is giving me the shakes. I am not sure what. Irony of all of this is that the very drug GI DR goes against the allergists advice to cut out the salicylates! The hemotolgist wants me on salicylates. I don't know this all so overwhelming...3 months ago I thought I was healthy.
