thanks Old Hat, I will call back today. I am near Boston about
1 hour and am seriously considering going to the chron's & colitis center there. I should start looking into Dr's. there now so I can get an appt (my GI is booked thru Nov, so those are probably the same).
He said he was going to do some reading about
all the stuff I have going on........doesn't sound too good, eh?
Old Hat - what would you do in my situation about
the mesalamine drugs? I don't know if I should even consider ever trying them again. I don't think there is any test that can say for sure, I think that I would have to try them again and have them monitor my urine (that's what GI suggested). Would you take that chance? I know I have to make my own decisions (in the future) but I am curious to have your view point b/c of all the other drugs out there, if there is a chance the mesalamine would be okay for me.....I just don't know if it's worth it.
