  Hey all,
First i would like to say thank you all for saying the prayers for me, when i went in last wednesday for my colonscopy.  Well needless to say everyone knows that i was admitted to the hosptial on Oct. 2 2007 for a week, my doc did a flex sig on me and told me i had colitis. when i was released from the hosptial i had to make a follow up appt with my doc, so i did he put me on 400 mg of asacol to take 4 times a day which was 1600 mg a day. and he also put me on bentyal as well. so i took the meds as he said do. So i had to do a full colonscopy on nov 21, 2007 (thanks again for all the prayers) i got my results after it was done, the doc said my colonscopy can back fine and i could cut back on my ascaol to 2 pills a day which is 800 mg a day. i feel like im doing ok. I have some intermitten (sp) pain on my right side (the tech at the hosptial on my ct-scan said i had pancolitis but seen mostly on the right side) but now my doc is saying that my colonscopy is ok, he took some biopoises (sp) and said to make a 6 week follow up and if i dont hear back from my biopoises then not to worry.  Well im so confused, i did do a hida scan for my gallbladder and it was at 37 percent he told me it was border line and i needed to follow up with my surgeon which is dec 11. I hope this is so not confusing to you all.  Any suggestions will be great.

Hi Teresa,

SO sorry to hear that you are confused, that's exactly how I Felt when I first got diagnosed.. I don't think I can help you much with the gallbladder stuff because I've never had trouble like that, but as far as the biopsy's... I know mine took a couple of weeks to come back. What I would suggest is to call your doctors office and find out if your biopsy's came back with anything. At least then you will know what you are or aren't dealing with. Just to tell you if you don't hear then don't worry.. Well, anyone should know that is an almost imposible request~! If you feel like you are doing ok, accept that for now but do follow up and find out what the biopsy's showed. That way you can make sure you are on the correct and proper dosages of medicine...

I too have occasional right sided pain, just underneath my rib cage and it can be from being constipated or from the trauma of going so much, like I have been for the last couple of weeks. I don't have any bleeding and generally feel ok, so I just keep on keeping on with my meds and try not to think more of it. I did go see a local doctor up here (Im in Montana right now) and had a stool sample sent in because this was even an unusual amount of liquipoopie for me.. Thank GOD the tests came back all negative, nothing to worry about so it was probably a virus.. but over the last 3 or 4 days now I have been having this right sided pain, but as long as it doesn't get worse, I'll not worry too much...

Good luck and I hope this has helped you in some way :)
