So… I made it the 3 weeks to my colonoscopy. I was getting progressively sicker day by day. More D and more B. My stomach hurt like crazy. For me, I have to drink clear liquids for 3 days before the prep… so I think that helped my colon a little (gave it a little […]
The flare is getting worse! I am scheduled for a colonoscopy about a week and a half after Thanksgiving. Almost as soon as I scheduled it (last Monday) my flare that was manageable and not so bad (but was there) became increasingly worse. I don’t know why… it just did. I didn’t change anything I […]
