Topic: My Apologies
To My Dearest "Other" Family. I have not been on the Board as much as I was as I have been pretty sick the last month. I feel bad writing about it as it is not Cancer but did want to tell you. About 6 months after Teddy passed I exploded so to speak with Ulcerated Colitis. I had been on Presnisone in high doses for a year, way too long. Also canot take any of the Mesalamime products that most can take for UC. Well the week of Thanksgiving I had weaned down to my last Pred and at the same time started to not eat. I would eat a few bites and could not eat any more. Then about 3 weeks ago I stopped eating as I would get so nausous. For 3 weeks I have existed on Water, Ginger Ale and Diet 7-UP. I have dropped 25 LBS, and am very weak. I just had an Endoscopy and all is good. I have one more test Monday, a bowel thing with Barium. I am so nervous as to how I will drink all that Barium! The weird thing is I have been to ER twice and my LABS are great! We are thinking it is either the UC or still effects from going off the Preds. Any advise would be most appreciated. BTW the only other Med I could take for the UC would be Humira but there are warnings on it for Diabetics or if one has had Cancer of which I fit both categories. Any thoughts on Humira. Thanks everyone, this Board keeps me going.
