Thanks for the welcome words. As it happened I was diagnosed 6mos after birth of son with ulcerative proctitis. A year and
half after that i was hospitalized , thats when I was diagnosed with UC. I too think it was silly saying that i pushed wrong but it was strange that there was no family history of UC and then right after birth was diagnosed with it. I use both rowasa enemas and Canasa Suppositories alternatively two per day. Lialda 4 daily. Iron sups 2 x , a multi. During hospital stay was on prednisone 30mg and then tappered off, also was on asacol 6tabs.
II know certain foods cause flares and I guess maybe stress too. I wonder if wine does? I guess I just wonder if anybody else had been diagnosed shortly after child birth? My GI doc is a new one for me recommened by my old GI doc who moved away . What are some of the other meds that you all take, that seem to help? I would rather stay off the prednisone/steroids, if possible, to controll flare.
