She doesn't need prednisone.....anywhere near needing it!
Just to let you know Gigi....enzymes can cause diarrhea...maybe lighten up on them a bit or go off them for a while?
It might take you months before the bleeding stops....please try to understand that the meds take time.
If are getting worse....that's a different situation. If you're improving slowly...normal!
Hang tough and try to allow yourself healing time.
I had bloody explosive diarrhea up to 20 times a day...I showed slow improvement....the doc said "be patient"..I was. Lessened my frustration level.
