dad. medical update

so as you all know our dad has UC ulcerative colitis.

He’s going through an awful lot of pain with it.

For the next couple of weeks he has a lot of doctor appointments.

On tuesday of this week, he goes for a liver ultrasound. On Monday of next week he goes for physiotherapy for the bowel issues. Not sure what that entails probably they will give him exercises to help him relax his bowel. Then the following Friday he sees his gastroenterologist. He’s hoping she will start some treatment then.

She mentioned injections. But they have a lot of side effects. And she didnt know whether he’d be a suitable candidate or not, which is why she ran all the tests first.

I keep telling him he should not pin all his hopes on the injections. He isnt listening. I guess if I was in as much pain as he is I’d be pinning my hopes on them as well. I do feel sorry for him. Yes he can be a jerk and yes he is a nightmare to be around when he’s like this but nobody deserves the kind of pain he’s in.

And its not getting any easier, his problems are getting worse as time goes on.

Please guys, if you pray then pray or please send some good vibes or good thoughts to my dad.
thanks
carol anne
