It sounds like you're doing pretty good. The fact that you don't see anymore blood and only going a few times a day is a good thing. I agree with Pb, you might notice a bit more symptoms when tapering off a steroid. The symptoms should only last a few days so if you taper and you have symptoms for more then a week, then you might have to call your GI and let him/her know. Also when you see your GI, you might want to ask him for rectal meds - this might allow you to taper off the steroid more successfully.
