My son was unfortunatly recently diagonised with mild UP via scope. Blood was only detected in a stool sample and already he is anemic. He was given Apriso and Rowasa. It has only been 2 weeks but I see no difference, in fact maybe a tab worse today. He has gone from loose stools to straining and now back to loose. He's tired and his appetite is off. It's been so long since I had to deal with this and am getting nervous considering my situation. I remember something about a 3 week mark with the meds and getting into a remission? Sorry if I am panicking but I need someone to panick to right now-lol. Right now he is stable. Seeing the GI again this week.
