Hey everyone! I have not been on the forum for the past couple of months as I have been feeling GREAT! My meds seem to be working wonderfully.
Just a question: I have noticed these tiny little pellets in my BMs that I am assuming is the pellets that are inside of the Apriso capsules. Should I be worried that I am not getting all of the meds that I am supposed to because some is just coming out the other end?
I just so happened to have a follow-up with my GI last week and he didn't seem to care about that. He was just happy that I am doing well, my blood work looks good (had been going every 2 weeks for CBC and CMP, he switched that to every 3 months), etc. He said "well, you need a colonoscopy every 3 years and you are due for one in 2 years. Hopefully you don't need me until then!"
Let me know what you guys think!
