It has been 8 wks on pentasa, entocort and rifaximin. I have an appointment the end of Nov. at Mayo to figure out this liver disease caused by my crohns called PBC. I am still having all my crohns symptoms similiar to the day I was diagnosed 8 wks ago except for the right lower pain which is gone. The diarrhea, rumbling, stomach pain is all still there and I have had enough of trying to figure out what bothers my stomach because it seems everything does. I see the GI doc Monday for an MRCP. My last CAT scan still shows active crohns in ti. Has anyone had a short course of steroids to get them over the hump. What would a short course be? We didn't want to start 6mp or remicade until this PBC diagnosis is figured out since everything is metabolized in the liver, but I am so tired of the pain and need relief.
Hoping for some help.
