Well, lets see. I started pred. almost a week ago as recomended by my dietition, naturalpath and my doctor. I was so excited when I was talking to my dietition because she gave me a list of safe foods that I could eat which sounded great, but then 15 minutes after talking with her, I was talking with my doctor to get my pred. prescription and told him about the list of foods and he told me that the only thing I was aloud to eat was apple sauce, banana and rice pablum. (how freakin disheartening) Ive now lost 37 lbs. thats approx. 14% of my body mass. My energy level is very low, my mood is spuratic and now this crap that the doctor has me eating is making me bunged up which makes me feel sick. Im still getting a little mucos and blood in the morning, but the urgency's have subsided slightly but I feel so bloated. I have a appointment with my GP today, so hopefully we can get something figured out.
With regards to my UC. All I know is that its from my rectum to my transvercolon. How much of the transverscolon it has affected, I dont know.
The thing I found kinda weird is that the pred. that I am taking are little white 5 mg pills with no coating, so the pretty much disolve as soon as I put them in my mouth. Is that normal?
Im still taking my Asacol and Cortofoam as well.
The last couple days I have been on a very low pitty party. I feel so bad for my wife and baby. Im almost ready to give up and book the surgery. I dont know how you long timers managed to do this. Ive only been diagnosed for 3 weeks today and Ive about had it.
Thanks again for all your support people.
Hope to talk to you soon.
