I had my three month follow up with my IBD specialist.
I had my first flex sig - surprise - did not know she was going to do that today.
The first thing she said was a very discouraging 'oh!' :(
I've got very bad ulceration up to 15 - 20cm. It is mostly one giant ulcer. She had to flush and flush and flush very sticky mucus to see anything. Things look much better above 20cm, so some of my colon is improving.
She is testing for c diff. She said it looks very suspiciously like an infection in my rectum.
I am also repeating my Imuran and Remicade level tests, and may be increasing them again too.
Ew, my scope was gross - it just looked so - sick :(
