@ MarjieKay :
when did you start using the mesalamine and what form are you using ?
I am sorry, Turds, I didn't see your post until now. When the rosacea began I was using both oral and rectal. And this was about
3 months ago that I started using them.
I quit both, had blood tests run, was cleared of all lupus suspicions and told my kidney pain was most likely just dehydration (I had elevated bun creatine ratio, too). And also ketones in my urine. The person who saw me about
results was indifferent.
So, now I am back to alternating the hydrocortisone and mesalamine enemas and NOT taking the oral stuff (Pentasa). I do have an RX for Uceris sitting here though. But at the moment I am seeing very good results and don't see the point. No blood, to my knowledge no mucus .....but the first BM is camouflaged w/ leftover enema.
I plan on testing the waters before my next colonoscopy on July 28th just so I can see what the truth is. Before even at 6 weeks if I skipped one I'd see M. And if I wait long enough the B returns.
I am really getting concerned though that the rosacea is a separate issue. But gosh, all those tests were totally negative!
