Dear readers of the page, I’m sorry for my absence. Not a lot has been going on in my life until today. I get a call from my Gastroenterologist who tells me that my Crohn’s has returned. In addition, I’m anemic, and my vitamin D is extremely low.
I don’t know what we are going to do about the anemia because I can’t tolerate oral iron. I guess if it gets bad enough they will hook me up to an i/v/. The vit D I can take care of on my own, but Dr. Wolf wants me to take it for 6 months. As far as the Crohn’s is concerned, we are trying to get approval to raise my dose of Cimzia double to knock this back. Hopefully, this will be the case, as I don’t want to have another surgery on my intestines.
I’m good, though. No pain, no cramps, no major fatigue. No joint swelling, no ulcers, no fistulas. Everything’s good.
I also got an update from Dr. Tangpricha but the portal is acting wonky, and I can’t get through. So, I will have more on that in my next post. As for now, friends, have a grand night/day!
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I have a colonoscopy scheduled for Jan 9. No bueno!
