Well I had my second chemo and it went about the same as the first with a few improvements. I still had a lot of diarrhea and some abdominal pain but my fistula did not flare and I didn’t have nearly as much bleeding. I really do think that this is just a side effect of the chemo and not that my crohns is flaring because once I get through the rough part I am back to my normal normal. I did call my GI doctor about the severe diarrhea and he proscribed Lomotil. It did seem to help a little bit but not much. I was able to stay hydrated enough to stay out of the hospital. That however was quite an ordeal with a nasty nurse. If you want you can read about that in my other blog http://yourboobsoryourlife.blogspot.com/ Thankfully my GI doc understands what I’m going through and will help in any way he can. My appetite is good and I am very glad that I haven’t lost any weight so far. I really hope that doesn’t happen. Since I only have 2 more treatments left I don’t think it will. Well I hope everyone had a nice new years and that 2011 will be very happy and very healthy for all of us!
