Saw my GI. To start I have oral thrush. Noticed the white bumps in my mouth on the way to the GI. 5 days of diflucan...anything I should worry about
UC wise with this one?
He thinks I need to add more fiber to my diet to bulk the stool. He also thinks there is an IBS connection especially because of the stress I put myself under.
I was told I could stop rectals and see how my body handles it. I will start tapering Uceris this week as well. He thinks I will start feeling better in the next week or so as the Remicade does its job and my body starts to heal. He thinks my hormones are a big role in all of this. He prescribed bentyl 10 mg twice a day.
@Alice22 - I keep a pretty strict bland diet. I can not find any food correlations. I don't eat dairy since I'm lactose. I stay away from raw veggies, soy, corn anything. I make fruit smoothies. Chicken, eggs, salmon, white rice...anything soft on the gut. I should start a food journal to see if there is something I am missing...sometimes I wonder about
peanut butter and marinara sauce/tomatoes.
I can't do Imuran because 6mp messed with my liver.
