I was switched from 9 Asacol daily to 2 Lialda a day a few weeks ago. I read in previous threads that a few people were on it. My doc said it was just like Asacol only i take less pills. And from what i read from others comments it didn't seem like everyone was told that. So i wanted to know a little more of what other people were told or read about it. I only did a few basic things to look it up, i have not had the time to really look into it yet.
I am also starting a flare i think. When i went to the doc i was seeing blood only in a few stolls during the week, and now it seems like a daily thing and some urgency is coming back as well. The doc said its prob just a hemorid. but i don't feel like it is, thats how my UC went un treated for about 5 months (diffrent doc) but i have a colonoscapy to check things out on Thursday next week so i guess nothing i can really do until then. Remicade is the next step if i need it..
And i thought things were going so well!! i was feeling great.. starting to try and work of those roid pounds and loosing the moon face. But now i'm moody again (everytime i see blood or look in a mirror i get so disscoraged) I just don't know what to do. (there needs to be a spell check on this, sorry my spelling is not the greatest)
