Hi everyone, I'm glad to have found your site!
4 weeks ago I was diagnosed w/ CD (from CT Scan & Colonoscopy). I am currently taking 20mg Prednisone (have tapered from 40 mg), and 3600mg Asacol (1200mg 3x day) daily. I have been pain free for over 2 weeks and had regular, healthy BM's for 9 days now and i'm quite happy to be feeling better!
I'm very anxious to get off the prednisone over the next few weeks, and i'm feeling really optimistic about recovery and remission!
I'm hoping to hear from people who have positive stories of long term remission (and how they got there).
I have a 14 month old daughter who needs a healthy mommy and a husband who wants a healthy, happy wife.
Is there anyone who has got OFF prednisone for long periods of time? I'm having a hard time finding any stories with positive outcomes out there!
I'm willing to try hypnotherapy, chiropractic & acupuncture as natural healers, has anyone used these techniques and had them work for them?
I appreciate any information! I'm just trying to stay positive and keep my stress level down, and its hard enough when i'm on prednisone and all I read about is horror stories.
