Tab, It could be the depakote, I'm calling PCP physician today about
the 2nd opinion, for next week. I'd like these meds to have more of a chance to take effect before seeing new GI. Oh, MY PCP is also new. Yes, I had the colonoscopy, & he said he found UC. But failed to give any info about
it...size, where located. Although I can tell you from where the pain is & he did say that that's where the trouble is. I've also been experiencing new & increasing pain on right side in addition to the original left sided pain. Here's another problem..darvocets. I've had chronic back pain due to degenerative arthritis, intrauterine polyps we didn't know I had till it was debilitating for a year, and my old pcp had me on a running supply of darvocets for the pain as it ws well tolerated, and worked well for me with minimum amts needed to do the job. I don't feel addicted. Hwever, I think they masked the symptoms of my UC/IBD for years ( I have gone long periods without needing them & would experience d & cramping,bloody stools, etc.) So, I'm going off them, and now the old symptoms, along with the meds are kicking my behind...exhaustion being one of them..Can you tell that I'm new, and confused by all this...Hahaha! I forgot my original point... I guess I just need to get that 2nd opinion & hope that the new doc & I can communicate...thanks for being here!
2 asacol 3x daily for UC. Canasa suppositories, also 3x daily, as needed.
