I tapered off Pred in July. Every day I take 4 Apriso, 5 Metamucil, fish oil, vit. D and calcium. When flaring, I have the big D. The only symptoms I have left are gas and a feeling of some urgency or rectal pressure when I wake up and occasionally during the day. Does this mean I still have inflammation?
Most times I have one formed BM a day (thanks to the Metamucil)--occasionally I go a second time which is usually D or small pieces.
Any suggestions on how to get rid of the feeling of urgency. I had asked for a RX for Canasa when I saw the GI, but he said I didn't need it.
I have a fistula but it is not bothering me at all. I'm happy I am feeling good but wonder if the urgency is a sign all is not as it should be.
Thanks for reading this.
