Just when I was dealing with RA and the change in diet from non-veg diet to a low fat vegan diet, I had another medical concern recently. My family physician has asked me to go for a Colonoscopy, because blood was spotted in my stools during my FOBT test which is normally done in Canada once we are over 50 years. I am 53 years old.
My colonoscopy is scheduled for this coming Wednesday ie the 17th of Feb. The Colonoscopy procedure requires you to totally empty your colon the day before. I have one doubt regarding this. As I take my 17.5mg MTX once a week every Tuesday. I am in a fix as to what should I do with my MTX dose for that week? Should I skip it or take the day after the procedure is done? Would it lead to any flare up?
I am feeling I can take a chance by skipping the MTX dose for one week and seeing how my body takes it. Not sure though.
I can understand none would have any right answer for this but just thought of sharing my dilemma with you. Just in case you have some suggestions.
