The Good News

I called my Gastroenterologist's office this afternoon to find out whether they had received any test results.

They had ... and the results are all good!

B12: normal. Iron: normal. Sed Rate: 3 (normal range is 0-20). C-Diff: negative. WBC not present in specimen!

I am doing something right!

So ... why all the pain in my lower right quadrant despite SCD, Vitamin D and Pentasa? I have accepted the Doctor's recommendation to try Entocort® EC, a new type of corticosteroid used to treat Crohn's Disease. I'll have been on it for about a week before my next office visit.

thanks,
