My bleeding has been long gone. Horrible arthritic pains long subsided, and I can handle Tylenol now. No running to the bathroom in the middle of a meal. No spending all morning in and out of the bathroom. Plenty of morning gas though.
I can eat dinner and not have to go to the bathroom 15 minutes later.
But...I still take Lomitil to leave the house for the day. I no longer work, so when I leave it's to do fun things with my husband.
I don't like to take too many Lomotil, so I only go out a couple times a week.
So what is this I am in? I worry about planning a trip, beacuse I still have those morning problems, so do not think I am in total remission.
I always think as long as I've had this disease that I would know for sure if I am in remission, but we are always second guessing ourselves, and of course that "urgency" is always in our upper most mind/fear.
In remission at this time and holding my breath.
Back in full flare.
