I have read here for quite awhile, but just now registered.
I have to be truthful and tell you that everything I have read about taking Prednisone is so scary and horrible, that I have to wonder if the cure is worst than the disease?
I am not on it, but it was suggested once, and I said I am no where bothered enough yet to try that, and just refused.
I am on 2 asacol 3 times a day, but truthfully, Immodium helps much more than the prescription. If I take Immodium the night before an event, I am fine. No Immodium and I have to go to the bathroom soon as I finish eating. I don't go to the bathroom any other time, but after I eat. But, since having my gallbladder removed years ago, I always had that kind of problem and they warned me I would. I don't have cramping, nor actual diarrea, just blood, and having to go soon as I eat(within 10 minutes.
I do have bleeding, but also was told I have hemmroids(sp?)
I also have to ask somewhat of an embarassing question. Can any of you pass gas without having something happen in your undies? I don't dare pass gas without being on the toilet, or I have blood in my pants.
Anyhow, I have an appointment the 16th for my 6 month check up with my GI, and wanted to get some feedback here in case I needed to discuss some things with him I am confused about.
Thank you for reading my long first post.
