2020 Visions | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

I ended 2019 with a double blog post, Colonoscopy #5 and Thoracic Follow-Up. At the end of November and beginning of December, I had been really sick, and I had been avoiding people and doing anything I could to rid myself of that cold. I had mentioned previously that I was coughing so much -… Continue reading 2020 Visions | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Colonoscopy #5 & Crohn’s Disease Updates | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

It was in November of 2017 that I had my last pill capsule endoscopy, with my last colonoscopy just months after that. I had been on Enyvio medication for my Crohn's disease at the time and I had switched to Stelara in February of 2018. Since I have been on the Stelara injections for over… Continue reading Colonoscopy #5 & Crohn’s Disease Updates | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Perianal Abscess #2 in My Crohn’s Disease Journey | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Since I already wrote about my Rib Plating Surgery, this blog will focus on my Crohn's Disease. Expect a blog focusing on my ganglion cyst and hand troubles to follow. In my Crohn's disease world, things are about the same, which means chaos ensues. To catch you up, I have mentioned many times before that… Continue reading Perianal Abscess #2 in My Crohn’s Disease Journey | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

I suppose I will just continue where I left off in my last blog, My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy, where I talked about my thoracic rib appointments. In that blog, I didn't necessarily discuss anything but thoracic issues. The rest, well, is just as chaotic. In the coming days, I will be trying to catch… Continue reading Rib Plating Surgery and Thoracic Appointments

My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Thoracic Thoracic seems to be another clinic that I frequent. I have suffered from rib pain for about a year now. Sudden onset of pain, with two major areas of focus on my left side. We are not 100% certain that these pains are related or not. Because there is so much to cover in… Continue reading My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Since my last post, Two Months Time, it has roughly been around two and a half months, give or take a few days depending on when I finish this blog. I've been so negligent, I feel like I can never get caught up, like I'm pulled a million different ways all at once. I add… Continue reading One Step Forward, Two Steps Back | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG
