I was reading all the medications that everyone is taking and was surprised to see such a varity. It looks like the Doctors do not know what will work, unless it is different for everyone. I have not been in a CD Forum for years and am surprised to see how many teenagers have CD. For the 1st 15 years they called mine ulcerative Colitis until one day the doctors started calling it CD.
Forty years ago the Doctors said mine was caused from eating Fried foods and drinking milk. I drank a gallon every 3 days. What are the Doctors telling you teens what is the cause?
When you go into remission your stool will firm up and you will have more energy. In the restroom, the bleeding happens on your 1st visit because it has been building up while asleep and it will usually be at the end of your purge. That is when you check it to see how bad you are bleeding. Sometimes you will not see any but it will be there. Remission to me is periodic and different for everyone. My remission is about 4 good days long then a couple of days of being tired then 4 to 10 more good days.
Kick the Prednisone and tell the Doctor to give you the LIALDA, you will see a 500 % difference over the Sulfalazine. You can get Rowasa liquid suppository if you just have CD in the last 10 inches of your rectum. That will stop the bleeding within 4 days. My CD is in the transverse Colon and that is why I take the LIALDA, otherwise I would just take the Sulfalazine and ROWASA. I forgot, if you want Ice Cream or milk they make both that are Latcose Free at the store. You might as well start getting used to the taste of them now. It helps when you want that midnight bowl of Ice Cream or a Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich with a big cold glass of milk. I am getting hungry, see ya!
