I never really got a handle on this disease since first noticing blood last febuary. Over Xmas i unmedicated myself(just lazyiness, feel free to scold me) and i noticed a few changes in my symptoms. increase gas mucous blood and passing something pr
every toilet trip.
so as i had an app with my gi on fri 13th there i decided to get serious with my meds.
i doubled my dose of asacol to2400mg and inserted the dredded pentasa supp every night. (i say dredded because i hate using them) i usually take asacol every night so i wouldnt notice it upsetting my guts when im asleep but now im taking them during the day i do. My gut fills with painfull gas and my abdomen is rock hard. it really uncomfortable..
So on friday i told my Gi exactly that. His reply was that "I dont think it has anything to do with the asacol or UC but IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME aswel as UC.
Then he said he was gonna put me on an 8wk course of steroids Predisalone (sp). I refused them and asked about a steroid enema predfoam and maybe a 5asa enema as i dont like using the suppositories. He said to try that for a month but if it doesnt improve to go the steroid route.
Si now im on
salofalk 1g enema daily and
predfoam 1g daily and
decreased dose of 1600mg asacol daily.
What do yous reckon folks any thoughts on the meds
what do yous think about the IBS dx without any investigions?
havent started yet cuz my gp needs to do out the script for me.will start tomorrow.
