Hi Everyone :)
I had a capsule endoscopy on Wednesday, and have to wait 3 weeks for the results because my GI is going on vacation, but in the meantime, he's starting me on 9mg of Entocort because I have this right sided pain ever since I came off Prednisone in December and he's thinking that I might have Crohn's disease after all....
I was curious for whoever has taken it, what are the side effects and how long did it take to start working? I know that it is a steroid and is supposed to be more topical than systemic, so I'm guessing any side effects will be considerably less than I had on Prednisone. (hopefully as Prednisone was just horrible) Also I have had this pain constantly since December so I'm anxious to get rid of it, should it be a flare up of Crohn's in the Terminal Ileum and ascending colon.. (that's what it feels like anyhow)..
I appreciate any replies very much~! Thanks everyone :)
