@juststud - thanks :) Trying to relax as much as possible.
@ima - yes I have bentyl. I take it as needed. When I was flaring I was on 40 to 50 mg throughout the day. I just got down to 20 last week. Now back up to 40. I have 10 mg capsules. I plan on taking the bentyl and an immodium the day I start just to be safe. Great minds think alike ;)
@nssg - yeah I hear you. I have been going back and forth on rectals. My issue is that I have to do steroid enemas or supps because rowasa and canasa do not agree with me and I REALLY don't want to start with the steroids again. I did a steroid enema last night and there wasn't much improvement today so I was thinking it really is just IBS. I'm not sure if I am going to wait anther 24 hours to see how things go or just start the rectals. I know there is no inflammation in my rectum after a number of flex sigs and a colonoscopy. The inflammation stayed in the same spot the whole flare. My infusion is next Friday...so a bit away. I am trying to get it pushed up to earlier in the week. I told my GI I may need to push up to every 6 weeks but I haven't been able to gauge anything because I have spent the last 2 months tapering off so many things...I'm almost down to just Remi and Lialda.
Is skinny stool something to worry about
with no other symptoms?? My husband and mom say they get it fairly often based on food and water intake and neither of them have GI issues. I'm trying my best to relax and stay positive. I'm hoping this job is a jumpstart to breaking my fear cycle and getting me out of my head. 4 weeks to figure out if I want to teach then a great summer with my kids :)
OH and I forgot to mention my period is on its way and that makes my belly rock a bit too. Gotta love when it all hits at once.
