So, after doing some precision searches of the Bad Dog, I’ve come to realize I’m not the only one with this condition and once they’ve shoved a camera up your backside, vanity or modesty goes right out the window. I’m looking for some tips, advice, experience, success stories, or what have you. A little about me I don’t get sick and rarely even get so much as a cold so this has completely flattened me. Before this happened, I was 185 lbs (I’m 6 ft 1). I’ve lost 25 lbs and can’t seem to put it back on; food still goes right through me so I’m supplementing meals with Ensure, Muscle Milk and a bunch of power protein drinks. I’d be in real trouble without them. The doc seems to think that’s a reasonable thing to do under the circumstances. She actually suggested I double up my consumption to 5 or 6 - 8 oz containers a day. I’ve been “flared” up for 2 months and I just got diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Of course no regular MD knew what was wrong with me so it took a trip to emergency to get a CT Scan, followed by the colonoscopy. If you’ve had one, I’m sure you’d agree with my sentiments about the PEG solution. Golytley my @ss. After I left the hospital I started a course of steroids (9mg entocort) that I take in the morning and a 5 ASA enema every night. I told you, vanity, embarrassment, modesty or whatever you want to call it, straight out the window. If it works, I will do it. I saw the G.I. doc yesterday and she was discouraged that I wasn’t a lot better. She said some people don’t respond to treatment, others do. I gave them more vials of blood and I see her in 2 more weeks. She will likely ramp me up to prednisone or biologics to force me into remission. This sucks! I am pretty much constantly exhausted and if exert any energy, like rake leaves or go up and down stairs at any rate of speed, I get out of breath pretty instantly. A little about you... Anyone else in this boat who cares to mention it? Any advice on what foods might stay inside for long enough so I can get things back on track.
