Hi everyone :)
Today is my second day using Entocort. I haven't had any side effects that I can notice for sure, but I actually do feel like my pain is going away... My ascending colon area is calming down and it doesn't feel totally swollen today. I don't have as much pain in the ileocecal valve area either... I don't want to get my hopes up, but I do think it might be working already.
The only thing that could be a side effect, but not sure, is yesterday and tonight I feel just slightly queasy and a lack of appetite. I don't know if this is from the Entocort or not, but it's not bad at least. It does go away after I do a poopie though... It seems to be the worst when I can feel poopie traveling along my colon... so weird.... I have been way more active the last couple of days so that might be it also, as my abdomen is still sore and maybe I'm doing too much too soon.
Other than that, I'm kinda hopeful :) I'll be so happy when I don't have any pain!!!
