Wow I will have to bring that up when I go in. I am not sure if I should wait for my next GI appointment or just go to my family doctor and talk to him. I am ok with an ileostomy I have done that before but it would be awesome knowing I can keep it for a long while. I want to be normal for some time. I want to go out without worrying about
accidents or if I start having to go every few minutes. I just want to be able to live without all of that for awhile. Later on if I get good and sick of the bag then I can consider the takedown.
It has now been a year that I started having troubles. I did not get a c scope until October though. So far no medications have done anything but give me side effects. The cortenema's at least helped with the horrible inflamed feeling but now I think they are starting to mess with my hormones since I started having trouble sleeping. I have only done that during hormal shifts like pregnancy loss and ending breastfeeding. I have been on them since January so it is time I got off anyways since they do not really work. So back to just rowasa which makes my hair fall out terrible yet does little for my symptoms.
I have trouble though feeling like I am cheating. I have only had this a year and already I am wanting surgery. SO many deal with this for year after year before asking for surgery.
