Well.............. Cast your mind back to my original post....... (Reducing asacol or not)
I spoke with my consultants secretary today (12 days later ). "The doctor said, refer back to your original Asacol medication (2tabs x 3 daily), and he'll try and see you before February in an outpatients clinic"
Need I say more - Why oh why do so many people in the UK self prescribe - This says it all!
thanks for asking tho Dave. I'm pleased to say that i'm feeling a lot better, and not passing anywhere as near as much blood.
Still painfull and suffering from C tho. any ideas to help?
I'm not gonna stay on the pred for long, for obvious reasons, and aim to reduce a little quicker, hoping to get of within 14 days. If it gets worse, or deteriorates rapidly, it's back on the phone, GP, and if that gets me no-where again, it's of to A&E me thinks?
I'm taking 1600 calcium daily to keep those bones safe ;o)
thanks for asking how I was, it's comforting to know how much ppl care.
Cheers mate :o)
