I have been moaning a lot lately about all the foods I miss..... have been eating a pretty restricted diet recently. as some of you know, my new GI is switched me to cortfoam starting today, which means yesterday was my last of 5 days on hydrocort enemas. because I am steroid dependent, even the tiny bit of steroid in the hydrocort enemas has given me 100% relief (no blood, 2 BMs a day), so yesterday, thanks to the enemas, I ate 2 huge pieces of very cheesy pizza. and I drank a coke. pure indulgence. was so delicious. just had to say that to someone who might understand. I never thought I would say this, but all that grease and cheese was heavenly..... lol.....

I understand totally! I did it with Mexican food not long ago. I'll bet that pizza tasted like food from the gods, didn't it?

I haven't got the nerve yet to indulge in a burger from Burger King, but I am so craving it. Someday I am going to say fudge it and go for it.

The Coke would likely be worse for your inflammation than the pizza, depending on toppings. How are you doing? / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

same as you. My prednisone has really kicked in and, like you, I had pizza yesterday. It is only the 2nd time in the 1 1/2 years since dx'd that I ate pizza. I was nervous alittle afterwards but all is still perfect today. I bet I gain 20 lbs here pretty soon with all that I am eating but it sure is nice to have my appetite back.
