I did have some symptoms on and off before the 2nd colonoscopy, but nothing compared to before I started treatment. He hasn't given me a reason yet, I have to have a follow up appointment. He just said that it was still pancolitis and still active.
I do still have a problem with keeping weight on tho...
I used Pico Salax for cleaning out. Last time it worked great. I thought this time too...as I went to the bathroom about 25 times until 2am. I will speak to him about rectal meds when I'm in there. He's never mentioned them to me...maybe as my whole colon is affected? i don't know.
I was on pred in Dec last year until feb. I don't want to do it again...I'll have to wait to talk to him. i guess we'll see.
I think he took biopsies. Last time he took 5...this time I'm not so sure. I talk to him Aug 25 for follow up.
I'm just scared the next drugs are going to be way worse. I am not prefect...but don't feel i want to be on any biological drugs that increase risks for other things like TB or cancer. Scares the crap out of me. I'm only 28....
