HI all,
 
I just finished flagyl for the C-diff infection I had that presumably caused my recent flare-up.  Even though I just had a normal BM, I now have the mucus again...what do you think this means?

Mucus is usually my first sign of a flare.  Keep an eye on things.

62 yr old granny. South Jersey
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008
Still flaring.   Afraid that I am pred dependant.  Back on Pred 40 mgm for five days, then taper.  Other meds...Colazal, 6MP, Nexium, Cort enemas, Canasa suppository, Benicar, Toprol xl, water pill.
Calcium, Probiotic, Flaxseed oil capsule, multivitamin with Iron
Also have osteoporosis and high blood pressure
Remicade NOT an option. Not a candidate for surgery yet..says surgeon.

Mucous can be a normal thing. Keep an eye on it though and tell your doc if you see any changes. Best to call and pester them if you feel worried. I've called my doc's nurse several times and said "I know this is probably nothing, but I need someone to reassure me". The nurse is great and will check things out and call me back.

Have you tried any probiotics since you have been on antibiotics?
