Had a colonoscopy on Friday. Been on Entyvio since January of last year. When I was scoped in March of last year I had active disease to 45 cm. This time it was only 3 cm. Such a huge difference recovering afterwards this time. I filled a pad with blood last year from the biopsies and was hurting really badly afterwards. This time just a little blood right after, and feeling really wiped out/tired. Having flare type activity with blood tonight, so hopefully that resolves and doesn't get worse. Just like last time the results mention some other areas that are not full blown inflamation, but merrited biopsies. Biopsies confirmed UC last time, and I don't expect any different this time.
I didn't get the opportunity to ask him about some severe pain I had for an entire day after a motility type issue constipation painful bm. It hurt deep in the right groin area, and in my right lower back. I was starting to get concerned, but I was able to massage the muscles in my gut/hip area, and it would ease up briefly. I just don't understand why going to the bathroom has to feel like you pulled a muscle.
All in all, I have felt better with the colitis than I have in a long time. Now if I could just get my energy back.....
Oh, and I miss the old format on the boards. Main reason I don't come on here very much.
