Ok, mentioned in other post that I seen my GI on 15th and he said my meds (4 x Pentasa, 15mg Pred) weren't working (going to toilet 4 x day, D, blood 1 in 3 movements, lots pain/wind/no control). He took me off Pentasa (a week to see if urgency & D got better), and put me on azathioprine (Imuran).
Well, a week later and I've been going to toilet around 6 times a day, blood pretty much every time, still pain/no control.
I phonmed the IBD nurse yesterday who told me she'd speak to consultant 1st thing this morning and phone me back. She also told me to start on the enemas (Salofalk Mesalasine) again.
The IBD nurse phoned me and said the consultant said to go back up to 25mg Pred, if no improvement by w/end 30mg. I've to phone again on Monday morning to check how I am.
The strange thing is the IBD nurse said consultant specifically said NOT to use the enemas. Anyone know why that would be?
(That aside, hope the increase in Pred' gets this under control
