Well, I was diagnosed with IBS like 5-6years ago...this was just a guess on my docs part. We treated me with hyasciamine. Now I had 2nd colonoscopy, doc said ulcerative proctitis. New doc is having his lab check the paths. I thought IBD was UC as well, but new doc said probably not IBD, rather UC with IBS, but he is checking everything again. We may do another colonoscopy in a couple months. He just wants to also check to make sure it isn't something other than colon related..I'm even more confused than ever! Now I'm not taking darvocets for pain. Rather it's donnatol for both cramping & pain. This is ok so far, and I'm down to one canasa at bedtime. But the Asacol's stay the same. My ultrasounds are scheduled for the 28th of this month. My path slides are at new lab now. I see my docs again on 4th & 7th. I'm hanging in there ok, it's the unknown that kills ya! I'm not so sure about only one canasa a day though...Pain level in rectal area is getting worse. Am thinking of going back to 2 a day, if not the 3 a day I was at before. I'm so very glad you nice people are here to unload on, as you understand so well, what others do not. My d. is still at bay, but lurking, waiting for the wrong kind of food to hit the gut...
