What are they giving him for the C.diff..... Vanco is the best medicine to treat C.diff but many GIs start with Cipro.
I never have abdominal pain from UC except when I had C.diff.
Be careful with the tapper..... I had severe steroid withdrawal and it was much worse than any flare that I have ever had. I was soooooooo tired, shaky, moody, severe headaches. I would sleep 12-16 hours a day. It was horrible.
