Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008
Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!! Hope I don't jinx myself. Off the prednisone since 11/01/08...now see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks. Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.
Meds 3200 mg Asacol, 2.5 mg Prednisone. Doc wanted to put me on 6-mp or Remicade, but I refused to take the medications! For me, diet works...

I hadn't heard that. I am actually seeing some improvement on it already. My second infusion is next week.
Asacol, Prednisone, Remicade
