Yeesh! I had 60mg Pred for almost 2yrs and I'm surprised I came out of that with most of my sanity.
*bows to you in utmost respect*
How much of your intestines were removed? If you have 'enough' then I suspect the pred will be able to work. If you had a lot of length removed and have a very fast end-to-end travel time, the jabs may be better so you could get the benefit of the whole dose.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry......I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. No improvement with Remicade. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returned after resuming 6MP. Changed maintenance med to Methotrexate (MTX) and had great results with IM injections. Nausea and symptoms returning with oral MTX. Switched back to IM injections and am slowly improving.
