I'm still having some symptoms about a month into a flare -- but feeling much better than when this all started. I started tapering Pred, but now my GI thinks I should up the dose because of ongoing issues with D on some days (not all). So far, I refuse to do this -- I can't stand the Pred. Am meeting with him on the 15th (if I don't get worse before) to discuss options.
I have the same questions -- is Pred the only way to get totally symptom-free? And, what is the definition of symptom-free? No D, No C, Eat anything? Or, just a manageable amount of symptoms?
At this point, things aren't perfect -- but I'm up and about and working and eating (low-residue, low fiber). Would rather exist at this level (I think) than up the Prednisone.
