Well I just got back from my doctor and I had a good LLOOONNNGG talk with him about
the doctor that was covering for him. My doctor has changed a couple things for me. He has told me to take my Pred. once a day in the morning instead of spliting them up. He also says that I can eat blan foods (ie rice, potato, apple sauce, banana) just for the next couple of days because then I have another appointment with him on Thursday. He wants to see how Im doing after being on the Pred. for 1 week. He is hooking me up with a good GI and we will be working together with him. I will be taking the list of foods, that the dietition recomended for me, in on Thursday and will have him check off what he thinks I can eat. Right now I am following my doctors orders as long as the recomendations are moving forward as today is the first time I have actually seen MY doctor, and not the fill in doctor. My doctor just found out today that I have UC.
Oh ya....and just to add insult to injury, I thought I might have a roid and it turns out that my doc says it a freakin fisher (?spelling?) and probably gonna need surgery on that. Cmon already enough is enough.
The foods that the dietition recomended for me were.......Yogurt(with no berry seeds) cheese, egg, banana, 100% whole wheat bread (with no seeds) cereals (rice crispy's, chex, special K) chicken, fish, smooth peanut butter, crakers (ritz, soda) potato's, rice (white or brown) apple sauce, canned fruit, soups(chicken noodle, vegitable) pasta, carrots, squash, beats, yams (all veggies steamed soft) margerine, mayo (small amounts for fat intake because of the drastic weight loss) No heavy seasonings or anything like that.
Anyways, thats what I know now.....and I think I see a slight little glimmer of hope coming. I will let you know what happens after my next appointment on Thursday.
Thanks again for all your advice and links...keep em coming KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
