Thanks for asking Starlight. My colonoscopy went fine after the prep. ha ha Everything looked okay there other than the muscles in my intestines and stomach are not working right and are in a constant spasm. Dr. said this may be causing some of my diarrhea. I was started on Lotronex 2 a day with no luck yet. Iam still unable to tolerate food or liquids and have lost 17lbs in the last three weeks. He said I needed to call him back, they may do and EGD to check for Crohns in my small intestines. So sorry I haven't posted to you but I have been really sick and haven't been on the bulletin. I sure hope by now you have gootten your horrible colon. scheduled. Love and the best of luck to you. I will be sending prayers your way!!
SLR-soooooo glad that is behind you (teeheee)btw- what is an egd? sorry you have been sick- my RX for you is cartoons and peppermint tea!they still haven't called for the colonoscopy appt, and unfortunately, my blood stool test came back positive-i guess i'll be looking at colitis or cancer- trying not to tweak (easier said than done)sigh-never a dull moment, and it could always be worse.rest well my friend and write when you can- i will think good thoughts for you!
