Ok, those following my problems with side effects, etc. My NP called -after talking with the doctor - and he recommended (since I feel nearly in remission) Lialda twice a day and nightly Rowasa which I can cut back to every other night later. IF all goes well - followup appointment in two months!
We have not had power here because of remnants of IKE so I was taking some Imodium (no water for flushing) and seem to be doing ok.
Please pray for me to not have side effects and ONLY good results! I am TOO old for all this!!
I will be starting the Lialda in a couple days.
