I am happy to report that on Day 75 I have started to feel normal (2-3 solid bms/day) again! I am really happy bout this and very motivated!
For all those who are struggling with the diet, dont give up. The road to recovery is not an easy one! There will be plenty of ups and downs but the most important thing is that we are taking control of our own health!
Next, I had an appointment with my GI on Friday. It was a follow up appointment. He had prescribed me remicade and was surprised when he found out that I skipped the route of scheduling an appointment with my first infusion.
He asked me how I was doing and I told him I was feeling great because of the SCD. I even printed him out a summary that I found online because I knew he wouldnt want to read the whole book. He told me he would look into it and was happy that I was able to avoid the Remicade. He gave me another prescription for the Salofalk and wants me to remain on the higest dosage (8 pills a day). I have decided I will stay on the pills until I feel confident enough to go off of them. I have another appointment in 6 months and hopefully by then I can start decreasing the dosage until I am at my goal of being medication free!!! :)
Also, last week I watched an amazing documentary called Food Inc. I really recommend everyone who cares about their health to watch this. It will really change your views on our governments and the food we consume! I would love to hear feedback from anyone who has watched it.
So thats my update for all of you.
