Okay,  I did not hear from the doc on Friday like I have already said.
the 3 weeks between the GI visit and my colon test I had my monthly time and got sick.  -  before that I had been having some formed BM's and some D  normally the D had a little mucus but hardly every blood.
then he put me on the meds at the GI visit, told me to take Imodium instead of fiber and I was sick and the other.
I had lots of D and blood and only a couple of formed BM's
Okay stay with me -
when I had the colon scope last week it showed to be all inflamed a raw. - that was Wednesday.  Thursday I was still sore and had D.
no blood -  then Friday a little less D well today I have had my normal 2 BM's in the morning ( I think I just dont wait long enough (( sorry so graphic but I want some good feed back for my call to GI Monday Morning) - then had small but formed BM's Friday night - 2 and one mid day that was not D but not formed
then today had the morning BM -  then kinda of an urgent one mid day - still not D but not formed  ( no blood or film of mucus)
then later this afternoon had a normal BM and one tonight
so I think that is about 5 or 6 and for the most part they are small but formed -
that is about what is what like before I got sick  -but on some days I would have blood or mucus -  ( that would happen when I would get myself stressed or eat fast food junk)
okay -  so when I talk to the GI Monday - should I not tell him this and ask how my scope showed to be so raw but I am not having blood and mucus and D.
I still just dont get this whole thing.
I know I was awake enough to understand him when he gave DH the picture and tell him that he was planning to start me on Remicade -  but would I first not want to explore more meds like I was talking to Sherry about and maybe up my dose of Lialda.
The was a new GI for me -  our second visit was the scope.
I dont want to be to passive but then I dont want to jump off the cliff head first.
how should I approach the doctor when I call him Monday -  I even wonder if he thought my liver enzymes and colon was so bad why he did not call Friday -  ( I did call and he was in the office and was told they were open till 5 - but when I called at 4:30 I got their answering service)
sorry so long!!
