Flare Update

After being on prednisone for 5 or 6 days I finally resided to the fact that the rectal pain was not going to go away on it’s own. I called my GI on Monday and left a message for his nurse. I heard back from her a couple of hours and she said that I could use the hydro-cortisone suppositories that I used in December when I last had rectal pain. It worked then so I’m hoping it works now.

If the suppositories don’t work it’s on to plan B. My nurse didn’t say what plan B involves but I’m pretty sure my GI would want to do some sort of scope. Whether it’s a colonoscopy or a flex sig. And I don’t want either. I’m really hoping that between the prednisone, hydro-cortisone and Humira that my flare will finally be gone by the end of the week.

I will be so happy when I get off of this prednisone. I hate prednisone brain. It makes me all emotional and over react to things I wouldn’t over react too. I can’t wait to be off of it.

I’m so ready for this flare to be over. I want this rectal pain to go away so I can go back to walking and sitting without pain or discomfort. It’s getting nice out and I want to be able to walk my dogs more. I was also trying to work out more so I can get this prednisone weight off that I’ve had for two years now. I have stuff that I want to do and I feel like my body is holding me back. Fingers crossed that this round of meds work and that I can get back to as ‘normal’ as life gets when you live with a chronic illness.
