2021.09.25 01:26 Dense_Mail6645 Should I ask for a second opinion?
Hello all! I was diagnosed with mild to moderate UC limited to proctitis in 2019 dx through colonoscopy. I started mesalamine suppositories and within a few weeks I no longer had any issues. I discontinued the suppositories as the GI had initially said I could wean off of them. I hadn't had any issues until late July of this year. So once I saw the blood/musous/urgency all over again I started the mesalamine once again...however this time it didn't work.
I couldn't get back in with the GI physician so I was put in with a visit with his PA. Once I explained my symptoms to the PA (20 years as a PA..so tons of experience) he started me on Cipro and Flagyl and told me to continue the suppositories, he also gave me a Medrol taper pack. (I also have autoimmune type 1 diabetes, so steroids usually make my sugars skyrocket so we try to avoid) and also gave me oral mesalamine
He also ordered a sigmoidoscopy after the course of antibiotics and steroids which showed the UC had progressed to left sided UC. Biopsy confirmed moderate active UC. So right after the procedure I was told to stop the suppositories and continue with mesalamine enema as well as oral mesalamine I take 3 pills a day and one enema before bed.
My UC is under control now with the change in meds and I was hoping to ask him to drop the oral mesalamine to a lower dose since I am feeling better and I believe my hair is falling out because of it. I already had fine, thin hair so it's quite obvious that it's thinning.
Well...as soon as he came in the office before he even asked me how I was doing he just jumped straight to the pathology findings showing moderate UC and recommending that I start either Entivyo or Stelara. I've heard hair loss with biologics is worse... and besides that why would I have to try something new if what I am doing now seems to have resolved my issues?
I asked him this exact question and he stated because even though I may not have any symptoms, there is still likely inflammation that may make things worse or more complicated in the future such as colon cancer, fissures, or perforations.
Should I ask for a second opinion elsewhere?
For those of you on biologics has hair loss been an issue?
What if any side effects should I expect if I do go for a biologic?
If any one is type 1 diabetic please let me know how sugars reacted....

2021.09.25 01:26 endorphinss847 I’m really scared. Is this an early sign of oral cancer?
21 Female 5’2 42.5 kgs, occasional smoker. I have an ulcer on my uvula and my throat appears to be really red. I’m having difficulty in swallowing for the past 3 days ever since the ulcer appeared (got it after smoking) I also have a swollen lymph node on my right neck. It’s painless and is almost the size of an almond, it’s been that way for a almost two months now.

2021.09.25 01:26 DarknesseTT Advice on Laptop Choice & Specs
I am currently looking to buy a new laptop for school and gaming use, budget is around $900USD
So far I am leaning towards either a Lenovo or an HP as both of these offer a versatile option with the storage space I require (at least 1TB, but some of these models are coming with 1TB + 256 GB).
Could someone give me some enlightenment on what is the difference really between the Nvidia RTX 3050 and say a Nvidia GTX 1650?
I was going to buy the HP Omen but its lack of a number pad on the right side is really weird so I am going to be ending up buying a Pavilion. The options with pavilion are:
- Intel Core i5-11300H & Nvidia RTX 3050 , 12GB DDR4 SD RAM ($855)
AMD Ryzen 5 5600H & Nvidia GTX 1650, 12GB DDR4 SD RAM ($810)
Which of these are better?

2021.09.25 01:26 drdoomy069 streaming channels
Does hbomax have an option to like stream channels like they do on some streaming services. I would rather watch what they want me to watch instead of going through all their movies. at 5pm they have a movie streaming i will watch that and maher friday at 7 that would be nice. I paid for a year and i just want to watch channels like hbo, hbo2, hbo family etc. not have to choose my own movies to watch. anyway to get something like this?

2021.09.25 01:26 Stead-Freddy Props to Brampton Transit
I attend Chinguacousy Secondary School and since school started back up, the 29 bus that serves Williams Parkway would always be almost full even before it got to the school. Due to COVID drivers are only supposed to let as many people on as there are seats.
Some people said they were waiting for 4 or 5 buses until they got on, and getting home 2 hours late. Many people including myself started taking other buses like the 15 and then the 505. This led to the 29s traffic overflowing and causing those buses to fill up too. All in all it was chaos.
Last week I went to their website and found a complaint forum. I filled it out but wasn’t expecting much, but less than a week later they called me and actually added an extra bus on the route, which for the last two days has worked very well.
And it’s funny that I’m more surprised that the system worked than if it hadn’t worked.
But yeah, props to Brampton Transit for actually listening.

2021.09.25 01:26 93jrj93991k not a trans person myself but i need some advice. Tw / suicide
A while ago i received news that a cousing of mine tried to kill themselves. they're only 10yo which made the shock to the whole family even bigger, and for a while no one even knew why they attempted, but they eventually opened up about discovering to be transgender. My family doesn't seem to understand this very well (some do more than others) which makes me worry about this child a lot. I hate the idea of them hearing people invalidate their feelings and identity, saying that they're too young to know anything (which I've already heard plenty of times since we got the news) and I'm terrified of anyone bringing the church into the matter to try and repress the kid.
If anyone has any sources I could use to better educate myself in order to help them I would really appreciate it, I'm very concerned with them feeling alone in this process of discovery and acceptance. Also, if it's not stupid or evasive to ask these this, but what would you as a trans person have liked people to understand when you first came out? is there any way i can help them understand themselves better? and how should i try to educate my family on the subject?
