Thanks so much for all the responses
I had a full colonoscopy done at the beginning of July. I was told there was some inflammation, varying between mild-moderate left-sided only. GI recommended biologics but I asked if I could try LDN. I want to get pregnant and don’t want to be on biologics for it, and I have to be in complete remission before getting pregnant. The GI was not happy about
me asking about
LDN. She refused to even talk to me about
LDN and the SCD diet. So I asked her if she could do the sigmoidoscopy a month and a half later to monitor me while I was doing the SCD and starting LDN (I got from my naturopath). She agreed. And we did the sigmoidoscopy. She said it looked good but yes, doesn’t scope entire colon and she didn’t get too high. But after the procedure, she said, Okay, looks good. You can see me twice a year but come see me if you get pregnant. So I was very confused and asked, so am I in remission if I can get pregnant? And she said, I can’t say, you will always have low grade inflammation. Her answers aren’t direct and very wishy-washy. I had a baby in 2018 and the GI I had them made it very clear as to when and when I couldn’t get pregnant. She told me, since I’m not doing what she’s recommended, that she can’t tell me whether to get pregnant or not - so confusing! I’m waiting on my calprotectin results which are taking forever - been 2 weeks now but they said their machine was broken.
I am taking rectal and oral mesamalines/Pentasa. I’m also taking LDN and following SCD diet combined with a food sensitivity testing I did. Very restricted in foods right now, trying so hard to get into remission.
I do see a couple pieces of darker almost clot-like blood only during my first BM in the morning but not again for my other two BMs during the day. And the next two might or might not have bright pieces of red blood. So it’s very strange, sometimes it’s there, sometimes it’s not. It has decreased significantly and I feel so much better. So I’m just confused and hope I can attain remission with what I’m doing.
