My mom is concerned that I have not fully made it past my current flare to the point to be tappered off a 60 mg dosage of predisone. I only go to the bathroom at most two times a day, I wouldn't say that my stool is exetremely firm, however it is more like a piece of airy coral that looks somewhat feather like. I have no blood, and this is a much more solid stool than i orignally had before the 10 day antibitotic and the now 14 day dosage of pred. that is currently still at 60mg.
Any advice on more signs to look for improvement, and do you feel that this type of stool is an improvement from the flare up stage, atleast for considering tapering down from the dosage? I have a meeting with my GI on Monday, but I am just wondering what to think going in and what to really say.
