The good news is that I am not in really bad shape. The bad news is that I am officially in another flare.
The good: the colonoscopy went without any difficulties
The bad: I have been bleeding and in more pain since the test
The good: there is swelling up the left side only
The bad: the new doctor suggested some of my pain may be caused by irritable bowel. (What a bunch of crap)
The good: my hair stopped falling out
The bad: it might start to fall out again.
The good: the test being in the hospital with many others booked seemed to keep everything on schedule. I didn't wait at all.
The bad: the tight schedule prevented much discussion with the doctor and I don't really remember much of what was said. My partner was not included in those discussions.
The good: the drugs knocked me out completely and I didn't feel a thing
The bad: I feel worse now and don't expect a speedy recovery.
The good news is that I wasn't told to take Prednisone! The bad news is that I have to increase my mezavant (the reason the hair may start to fall out again) and it can take 4 weeks before it helps.
The good: I am nearly finished with this post.
The bad: The need to post will never end.
