I am recently diagnosed with aih. Have been on prednisone 40 mg for 10 days, then 40 mg for 5 weeks. GI doc wants to start me on 6mp, and reduce the pred to 20 mg at this time. From what ive seen on line this is a bit unusual. Got all these instructions at end of visit so I have not called doc to ask why. He handed me the rx and without telling me what it was, just that I should be especially alert for pancreatic pain or discomfort, and call immediately if it occurs.
I feel stupid for not discussing w/ doc at the time!, but I trusted. Now I think I need a new doc.

aih, hi and welcome to HealingWell. It never hurts to get a second opinion. Don't feel bad about not asking questions. No matter what you do or who you go to see for this...make a list of questions and have the Dr explain the answers in terms you understand. I always think that anyone with an illness should become educated about their disease. We have an excellent educational thread that is located under the topic section. Just click it then read what has been posted. It may help you to understand what is going on with your body. The members here are very compassionate and helpful. I think that our forum has some of the most educated and kind members of all the forums. We will help you anyway that we can so post and ask questions or just vent.
