Hi everyone,
 
l have just started my medication to control my CD this is my 2nd day on steriods and salofalk
i have had 1 bowel movement last night and today i have had none at all which i am not used to, these medication either work really fast or i am in seroius trouble meaning i am on my way to having a blockage prehaps? anyhow my tummy is bloated and feels tight not much discomfort.
Any ideas on whats going on with me, is this a normal response to treatment?
 
hope you can help..
 
The steriod is prednisolone starting with 50mg per day at moment

It's hard to say, I know that the Prednisone worked for me to firm up and slow down my BM. I just don't remember how fast it happened. All of my blockages started with pain and it increased in intensity as the hours passed.
I'm sorry I couldn't help much. I'm sure more will chime in.
Good luck!

It's amazing how we get so excited about having a bowel movement. I remember my first one after having surgery, my wife and I would have broke out the bottle of bubblie if we could have.

Prednisone is a very fast acting med. It works really quickly for me, firming up the stool and quieting things down quickly. Glad to hear you finally went:)
