So I have a new dr and he seems to think that what was diagnosed as Crohn's last year is ulcerative colitis (it was diagnosed as UC for about 5 years until my bad flare a year and a half ago that put me in the hospital and they have been saying it is Crohn's)
I have been on 6mp, finally finished weaning off pred about a month ago after being on it since Oct, then the other regular multi, calcium, folic acid, etc etc. I started getting a flare about a month ago but it has been manageable - I am seeing a new dr, whom I love, and he did a colonoscopy last week and found that I did have mild to moderate inflammation, mainly in the rectum and descending colon (which would make it correlate more with UC rather than Crohn's) - but regardless which one it is,
here is my question:
Can Lialda help you achieve remission?
My new dr prescribed it but then I developed a fever so he said to hold off for a while - I am not taking anything new, only the 6mp - can Lialda help stop a flare or do you need pred or flagyl/cipro/etc? I know it is different with everyone, but I have only been either really sick or not sick at all for the past 2 years and would LOVE to hear anyone's experience with Lialda.
Thank you!! :)
