Well I ended up having to have the colonoscopy. It was gross. But it showed that I have mild ulcerations of Crohn's disease in my colon just past where my anastamosis is . (Where they hooked my two intestines back together after my resection.) The Entocort is the best med for me to be on right now, however, Dr GI also wants me to have Pentasa for maintenance but my stupid insurance won't pay for it. They say that they won't pay for anything more that 4 pills a day. Pentasa is given at a dose of 4 pills 4 times a day. Apparently the MDs at the insurance company know something my doctor doesn't. Oh, what's that? There aren't MDs at the insurance company making these decisions? They are just corporate desk jockeys making medical decisions about peoples' lives without so much as a nursing degree? Oh that's right. That's how America works now.
Soooo, it's a waiting game that my husband is fighting with the insurance company over for me. We'll see who wins. But I'm not bitter.
