Re: Hey Twisten
Hey Poo. I actually was taken off all my meds a couple months ago after my last colonoscopy that my new GI ordered was good. My old GI said that was a big mistake and I agree as I'm having problems again now. When mine is active it tends to affect my bladder too and I run to the washroom about every 10 minutes. I was last on imuran, asacol and prednisone and pantoloc. The only one I'm still on is the pantoloc. I deal with nausea on a continuous basis also. I do have meds for it but they don't help much. I've been on pain meds continuously for close to 2 years now but not generally for my crohns although they do help some when I'm flaring. I have horrible back pain and was just diagnosed with osteopenia and osteoporosis. I know before my back pain was diagnosed and my crohns was active unless I was in the hospital I had one heck of a time getting a doc to prescribe me anything for pain. What type of pain meds do they give you? Do you take stool softeners to help with the constipation? I find I have to. It took me better than 25 years to get a diagnosis. In that time I had blood in my stool, fistula, fissures but I kept getting told I had IBS. It was finally by colonoscopy I got diagnosed only about 3-4 years ago. I hoped I answered everything for you. I'm not in here to much I'm usually on the pain management board so if you post to me and I don't see it come on over to the other board and find me. Take care.
