I think the doc said he thinks you have IBS, hence the prescript
ion of Levbid.
The prep irritates the colon stressing it a bit...so I'm not surprised you had mucus.
Many with IBS produce lots of mucus....kind of like getting phlegmy after eating something ice cold or coughing for a while.
Hope the biopsies show something. Do make sure you get a copy of the results...when do you go back for them?
*Heather* Status: ...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas every 2nd night
~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 !!!
