Hey guys,
 
Well just an update for you all.  Last time I posted, my symptoms came back slowly but surely, bleeding a mucus in my stool.  2 weeks ago I started my meds again Sulfasalazine 4 500mg per day, Annucort suppositories 2X per day, and Rowasa 2X per day.  Within a week of being on those meds the bleeding and mucus completely stopped once again.  So while yes I am happy, I am still getting a second opinion from a different GI.  I scheduled my apt for next month, and all of my records are being transferred to this new doc.  So I'm thinking to myself am I going to have to be on these medications for the rest of my life? So anyways just wanted to share.  Take care.
March of 07 ds mild chronic proctitis
-Rowasa/Sulfasalzine/hydrocortisone supossitories twice daily... did put into remission then I stopped and now it's coming back : ( 10/1/07
-Zoloft 100 mg
-Xanax .5mg as needed
 Non Rx: -Centrum multi-vitamin
-Chromium piclonate -Vitamin C-Calcium-B-12

Thanks for letting us know how you're doing Dentinn. I'm glad that you are starting to feel better. Unfortunately many of us have to stay on our meds for life (me included) and yes it takes much getting used to but after so many years it becomes second nature. I still resent having to take so many gosh darn pills but I have to pat myself on the back because I'm not in denial anymore and take them religiously.

ugh, i know--i have to take like 9 million piils (i should update my signature after this last hospital visit) but (and i know this is silly) it helps me to think of them (the 9 million ones i take in the morning) as personalized "katie" vitamins. like ok, here is the multivitamin for normal people and then here are special "katie" vitamins. i know it sounds very sesame street and something i would use on the kids i babysit for, but it makes me laugh before taking them...and i guess that is all that matters.

sorry to post again, and i don't mean to be moralizing (believe me, i don't judge on this stuff) but i noticed you are on xanax. just a word to the wise...i started taking it "as needed" (i'm on zoloft too) and tapering off of xanax has been TERRIBLE. do what you want, it is just something to keep in mind, that stuff sneaks up on you pretty quickly...

I refuse to say that I have to be dependent on drugs for the "rest of my life" as new treatments and breakthroughs are always coming up.. It's very grim and disheartening to hear people say that..
