Well that is a relief. Sadly I spent the whole night fretting after making the mistake of googling that stuff. I tell myself over and over to stay off google, there's nothing there but fear.
Okay, I mean it this time. Stay off google.
Thank you very much for the reassurance that I am okay.
Oh, and I don't have any symptoms. I told my GI doctor that if I didn't have a diagnosis of UC going back to 2009 and hadn't spent years pretty sick, I never would have guessed anything was wrong.
I have some joint pain in my hips and occasionally some lower back pain. I had been hoping it had nothing to do with my colon, but I guess with active disease still going, that is proof the pain is my colon.
I hadn't taken any drugs for years. The only thing that helped when I was really sick was cortenema, and everything I read said not to take those long term. Once my bleeding, diarrhea, mucus and pain all quit, I tapered off the cortenema.
I have an active Rx for generic rowesa rectal meds, but I'd not taken them before since they made the bleeding and cramping worse within hours of taking it back when I was sick. It also made my hair fall out pretty bad. I had visions of going bald before I switched to cortenema.
I tried some again last week, and no bleeding or cramping happened. Perhaps it was a coincidence?
