    Dr. wanting to start 6MP WITH my cimzia

    I had a colonoscopy done a couple weeks ago which showed inflammation or as my doctor said "Your colon is really angry". I'm currently on Cimzia and have been on it for about 4 years. My doctor is wanting to add 6mp to the mix and I am a nervous wreck about it after reading online. I had my...

    Biopsy results from colonoscopy

    I had my second colonoscopy 2 weeks ago and today was my follow up appt. When my dr. did my procedure, he said that everything looks surprisingly good. He told me that my colonoscopy last year (visually) showed some inflammation in my colon which it didn't show this year. I saw his assistant...

    Starting Cimzia soon

    and i'm sooo nervous and i'm not really sure why. I guess the thought of self-injecting myself makes me super nervous! I am getting my TB test done Monday and i'm in the process of trying to find someone who has the flu shot available. Besides that, we're just waiting on insurance to approve it!

    What is going on??

    I had part of my small intestine and my cecum removed in August of 2011 (I was diagnosed with CD on the operating table). For about 6 months after my surgery my stool were on the looser side of normal, not too loose but they were very easy to pass. Everytime I ate, I would have to go to the...

    Is it "normal"?

    sorry for the TMI.... To have pain in your back and stomache while having a bowel movement? The stomach pain almost feels like I can feel (painfully) my food moving through my inestines. The pain isn't too bad... maybe a 3-4 on a pain scale but i'm not sure if it's concerning at all. I...

    Blood work results..

    I asked my doctor to check my folate, Vitamin D and B12 levels at my last appt and he said he *normally* waits a year (I have no idea why) but because I was having numbness in my toe that I was hoping could have been related to low B12 he said he would go ahead and request the bloodwork. I...

    Constipation since taking vitamins

    I made a post a few days ago... maybe a week ago about getting constipated within a day after starting my multivitamin. I stopped taking my multivitamin and my stools went back to MY "normal" . I haven't taken any multivitamins since. I was also told to start taking Calcium 1200MG/day - I...

    Dark stools all the sudden...

    dark stools all the sudden... I saw my GI dr yesterday and he said my colonoscopy(which was 2 weeks ago) and endoscopy(which was in November) look good. He did tell me to start taking a multivitamin and calcium. I haven't taken any calcium yet (I just bought some today) but I did take a...

This is going to be long, I'm just copying and pasting most of it as it's a lot to re-type! I started feeling really ill in the begining of August, I had...
