Well i just had a GI appointment last week and as usual it was pointless. He wants me to get tested for tubercolosis(sorry if i mispelt it) and he gave me my first dose of Cortisone. He still says with time my colitis will turn into crohns or ulcerative colitis. But seeing how my entire colon is infected and irritated it is most likely to turn into ulcerative colitis.
I am getting really tired of seeing his sorry ass face. He is this young intern on a power trip. The questions he asked me are very unprofessional. He says I have this for life and there is nothing i can do about it. He says take cortisone so i can remember and feel how good life was. He says all my symptoms are not normal. Well dah im sick you moron.
I told him about the frequent urination and at times its about every 30 minutes. And at times its a lot and at times its very little. Im also starting to get joint pain in my legs and fingers. My skin color has also changed to a lighter shade of brown. Around my stomach area my skin color has changed as well and on my face as well. It is honestly a lighter shade of brown. Even my friends have noticed this but yet my doctor says he sees nothing and its probably because i got LESS sun. How is that possible. Also i told my Gi that on the left side i feel something big so he lies me down and starts feeling my intestins. He goes oh i feel nothing. Im like look like there on the left side its always on the same spot that it feels wierd like its swollen. He goes normally people with colitis it hurts on the right side. Im like look i said its on the left he said its probably nothing but I know your intestin is sick. Then he gave me my cortisone. I will not take it as I have read your posts on the drugs and i am going to decide to go the natural root 100% or get fecal transfusion.
I have been following the works of dr.borody and how he uses fecal transfusion in people with ulcerative colitis. He has seen great results. I just wanted to know where i can maybe get that treatment. Im willing to pay for it out of my own pockets as well. Also i wanted to know if anyone in canada has gotten that treatment since i am in canada.
Currently i am taking 2 tablets of bee propolis and it has been helping. Also taking chinese herbs which has been helping.
Hope all of you are doing good.
