Thanks for the replies! I'm definitely going to discuss w/ doc. HappyLiving, to answer your questions, my current symptoms are mostly urgency & frequency. On a "normal" day, I go to the bathroom 2-3 times in the morning - i consider this normal as this was pretty much my habit before UC. My symptoms now on a "bad" day are 8-12x in the morning w/ extreme urgency. Twice last week I almost fainted, had chills (but no fever) and nausea. Those were new symptoms. But then the next day, I might be totally fine - it's really odd!
I had to update my signature, as I am no longer on the Pred. I started in March on 40mg for 2 weeks and tapered off of it about 3 weeks ago. It was a nasty drug and I'll avoid it at all costs!!
I don't really know where my UC is, but i remember my doc saying something about 38cm??? I think it's pretty low. I prefer the Canasa b/c I can sustain it all night (i can't seem to keep the Rowasa in for more than 5 minutes!) - but do you think I should really be doing the Rowasa based on the location of the UC?
