I was sedated and told them I've had terrible pain in the past and didn't want to feel it. Well, I fell asleep which was fine with me!
I told the GI the enema insertion was painful this AM and the solution burned. I've never had this much difficulty before. I mentioned it to her and she said that's why we're taking a look.
She took biopsies, told me the pouch is inflammed, but wouldn't tell me what this might mean. She said we need to wait 7-10 days for the biopsy results.
Can someone give me the run down of which conditions relate to a pouch inflamation? I thought I could rule out cuffitis bc immodium and Gas X have cut my 10-20 BM's/day to 4-6/day. I've NEVER had that kind of success. Maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about though, so if someone could summarize which conditions consistute a pouch inflamation, I would be happy to search for prior post details.
She also called in VSL#3 to CVS, who told me my ins doesn't cover it and it will cost $500!! Is the best way to buy it at the link at the top of the forum? And it doesn't look like I need an Rx for it, right? Looks like it's under $90 for 30 days worth. I see there are a few choices, so I guess I need to talk to the GI to be sure I get the right one.
Thanks, in advance, for any feedback. You guys have been so amazingly helpful through all of this!
