Incomplete Grade on my Colonoscopy

About the only thing amusing about Monday's colonoscopy is my Dr. couldn't get the scope into the small intestine due to the constriction from Crohn's at the joint between colon and small intestine (after several previous surgeries there). So I didn't totally fail (inflammation at two spots) but I didn't pass either.....

Immediately back on Imuran 50mg Monday.

Second Neuropathy test today to maybe get a higher dose of Lyrica.

Still played volleyball last night, rode the motorcycle to work on Weds.

Fun stuff with Crohn's never ends!

Congrats on being able to get back to your usual activities so quickly. Hope they find something to help get your inflammation under better control.

Thanks Patricia, I am lucky enough to be doing anything right now. I'm already taking drugs to counteract the drugs I took for cd, if I live long I'll have drugs to counteract their side effects too.

I hope the imuran and now a cymbalta generic to help with lyrica helps the inflammation and neuropathy.

I imagine they already tried neurontin. I've heard that's good for neuropathy.
