I went to see my rheumatologist today. I filled out a form about my medical history, and soon after, the doctor came to see me. He asked how I was doing, and I said good. I’d written on the form that I’d stopped taking imuran, so I guess he noticed that and said my Crohn’s must be under control, which I confirmed. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but I guess he said my bones had improved. What I do remember him saying was “you don’t have osteoporosis any more”. I think I knew he had told me I had osteoporosis previously, but I’m not sure it ever really registered with me. So that’s good to hear I guess, not that I ever really noticed I had osteoporosis in the first place.
He said he thinks my bone health will go the way my Crohn’s does: if my Crohn’s is doing well, then my bones probably will too. He told me to let him know if they put me on prednisone for my Crohn’s again. He took my blood pressure, and he said since everything was fine, he didn’t want to waste any of my time, so I could go, and come see him again in a year and a half.
