My butt that is. Ba-dum-ching!
Today was the butt photo shoot. As suspected I do have pouchitis -- inflammation in my j-pouch. So for now we are going to try the Flagyl again (antibiotic), starting with a lower dosage to see if that eliminates the side effects I usually get with it (neuropathy.) If that doesn't work, I'll start on a steroid called Entercot. So fingers crossed, "no neuropathy, no neuropathy!"
I do have to say that the facility the procedure was at was very nice and the people were great. I had a really funny male nurse who had some pretty corny but awesome GI jokes. Hence the headline and opening joke:) I love it when the staff can joke around, I mean they are looking up people's butts and talking about poop and farts all day long, it's weird when they are stiff. My guy also said if he was an actual GI dr he would change his name to Seymour;) And as the added bonus I got my beloved conscious sedation, so I don't remember a thing from the actual photo shoot. Yeah!
Thank you to my dear friend J, for driving me and taking awesome notes and getting me back in the house safely. You're and excellent nurse and you rock!!!
