I know I have been posting terrible things about
prednisone, but let me tell you, it is better than going to the bathroom 25+ times a day and having horrible cramping. I can at least function, whereas before I could not. I wish I could be off of it right now but taking it doesn't mean you have to take it forever, it might really help jumpstart a remission for you.
how was the gallbladder surgery? I have an ultrasound next week and I am scared, I don't want anything else to be wrong w/me..
Also, I call passing gas with other stuff (i.e. blood & or mucous) a shart. I have not sharted in a while and let me tell you it feels good to fart and let all the pressure out and know that it's just a fart. When flaring, I could not just fart and all the pressure would hurt me.
I hope you get some good news at the Doc, keep us posted!
