As if colitis isn't already enough to deal with. I'm sorry you're going through this and I'm glad you got treatment today. Maybe the blood was so minimal that you wouldn't have noticed it on the paper because it would have been mixed but the doctor was able to see it. You're still flaring too. Who knows.
Have you stopped imuran for good now?
Good luck with your dexa scan tomorrow.
Thank you. I was hoping I wasn't flaring anymore. I haven't gotten off pred yet, but I haven't had UC symptoms for weeks. Usually the anal speculum thing (I dont know what it's called, lol) would hurt a lot if I was inflamed, and it didn't hurt today when she was looking in there. Last time, it hurt so bad I could barely take it. Plus, she said she didn't see inflammation or "much inflammation," so I'm not sure what the blood she saw was all about
. Kind of weird.
I can feel where she treated them, but it hasn't been bad at all so far. Just some mild discomfort.
Yeah, I stopped the Imuran for good. I feel so much better off of that. I was so miserable for a month. I don't even want to try a lower dose of it. Maybe I should, I don't know. I emailed my GI tonight and told him I stopped it.
Thank you, quincy. I hope so too!
