That level of prednisone probably isn't doing much, maybe go up to 15 or 20? It will give you energy! Blah, not a good reason to take it. But that level shouldn't be too uncomfortable. Maybe enemas will hit it too without disrupting your work. I don't have experience with Imuran.
Congrats on the successes. We need nurses!

Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & now recovering from irritation scope caused. Will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
