Long story to short, first of all am waiting to hear from the doctor here shortly to tell him how I am doing with the Pred. I have been on since Monday. Is it normal to always have blood in your stool whether it be just gas and cramping, mvmt. whatever when you flare? This is my first one since 2005 and I don't know what to expect each time this will happen the rest of my life. Luckily, this Pred. has pretty much made a difference since last week but of course with the blood, not out of the woods just as yet.
Am thinking he will keep me on 20 mg (2 pills a day) for at least another week I am assuming and then hopefully, start tapering down.
Diagnosed with UC/Pancolitis Dec. 05-Flaring again Presently!
Imuran: 1 daily 50 mg.
Colozal: 9 per day
Prednisone: 20 mg 2x a day
Try to keep positive and have faith!
