I have seen several doctors and am more confused than ever. first it was I.B.S. then hemorrhoids, then proctitis, then U.C. now Crohns/ colitis. I bleed everyday, sometimes more but never a lot. I do cramp a lot. I have left side pain. I have had I.B.S. for years. I have been on canasa, entocort, xifaxan. OH yea also have S.I.B.O. I have been told. The dr. wants to put me on Humeria or Remicade. my symptoms seem to go with u.c. more than crohns to me. Me & my husband are both half crazy. They kept saying only hemorrhoids don't worry. I kept saying you don't cramp like this with hemorrhoids. I have had 3 colonoscopies in less than a year. I have a lot of irritation in my lower colon and rectum. One precancerous polyp. I am afraid of the biological drugs. I am almost 66 years old and don't know if I can tolerate them. I am sorry I have rambled on so bad, I just don't know if I should try these drugs. Any advise would be appreciated,View Thread
