Because I am new on the Board....I was wondering...are there people out there with success stories about
proctitis they can share?
What meds have kept you in remission? Did you change your diet? Doing anything holistic? Etc...
You can see my siggy....but I am in the tapering period w/ my prednisone. For some reason my Doc tells me to drop in 10mgs every 7 days. I have been on 40mgs of prednisone since July 8th and I dropped on Wednesday to 30mgs. I did TRY to drop last week and 2 days later the bleeding started.
