Please pray for my health.

Recommended Posts

It's been a near literal rollercoaster of ups and downs with my health for the past 10 months. Starting with a Ulcerative Colitis flare up that lasted 5 months and cost me my job, ending with me contracting Cdif and struggling with that for the next 5 months - over the last month I've had two tests come back negative for cdif, but still had all the symptoms. Now I am in the beginning of another Ulcerative Colitis flare up, and am not sure what the next steps could be - medication wise, if what I am currently taking is not enough (which I fear it is shaping up to be), there is only one other non-surgical option left, but it greatly increases cancer risks (which I am already at high risk for). Please pray for wisdom and healing!

Jarad,  

So sorry you have been suffering with Colitis. Not great and very painful. A relative has Chorns disease which  is similar (but not the same). Like Colitis he has flare-ups which are not pleasant.

 

So prayers for respite and for the medics to get your medication working.

Update - still really sick with UC flare up. A third test confirms I do not have Cdif, so that is a plus, but the prednisone isn't really kicking in much to fight the flare up and I've been on them full dose for a week. It's on a taper, so I'm supposed to lower it soon, but that's not looking promising. I'm going to talk to my specialist tomorrow about it and ask about moving forward with a new medication (the last one available to me...) please continue to keep me in your prayers. They are greatly appreciated!
