4 weeks ageo i was put in the hospital after loseing roughly 20 lbs. in a week, not being able to drink, or eat, and just useing the bathroom all the time, well i got an colonoscpy(spelling?) and my GI doctor says its is inflamed from my colon to my rectium, so he says i have Ulcerative colitis and put me on 3 250mg pentasa 3x daily and 20 mg predione. That helped enough to get me out of the hospital and slowly started getting better but now i am on the same amount of pentasa but 50 mg of predione and i am still haveing 8-10 stools a day, at night i wake up almost atleast once an hour. But that is it, the pain for the most part is gone, i get a pain in my lower back but thats the only clue i get that i am going to have to use the bathroom soon. I was wondering if i should keep on and hope it slowly gets better or go back to my GI doctor and maybe look for different pills? Also i am worried it will get just as bad agean when i get off the predione, which i am ready to get off of.
Im 16 BTW, and it really quite sucks being perfectly normal 2 months ageo and now knowing i am going to have to take pills the rest of my life.
