Hi..is your UC throughout or limited? It's possible the pred has something to do with it? are you tapering at this time?
My doc did state to me there were some patients who had obvious active flares visually through a scope...but felt "fine". On the other hand, there have also been patients who have extreme symptoms but visually they had very mild inflammation.
Very frustrating indeed for both patients and doctors I would think....and it could be why some patients have spreading of their disease, few symptoms and then whammmmo!
KSU..did you have biopsies done and the results of them yet?
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
