I don't know if any of you remember but a few months back I posted a thread complaining about a recurring problem with my tummy. I had a colonoscopy back in June, my second in less than two years, and a couple of doctor visits since then. I've been on a medication called Colazal which is for mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. Anyway, I went to the doctor this past Wednesday and he said that based on his observations and the biopsy results that the inflammation is chronic. What he couldn't completely nail down is what I have. He said that I could have either Ulcerative Colitis or that it could be Chron's Disease. He said that he can't tell for sure which one it is because the condition hasn't progressed to the point to make a clear diagnosis possible. In addition to continuing to take the Colazal he also put me on a glucocorticosteriod called Entocort which is used to treat mild to moderate Chron's disease. I have to see him again in six weeks. In the meantime I have to get bloodtests for the following to see if there could be any other problems (I have no idea what some of these are):
CBC with Differential
T3/T4/TSh (I'm familiar with the first two because Shadow has hyperthyroidism)
This is different from my previous bloodtest. The last couple of days I've been battling diarrhea and lethargy but no stomach soreness. I've been pretty tired all week long, much more than I normally am.
