I don't think that's too bad of steroid dose for being hospitalized. I was at one time on 180mg a day. Nearly ruined my life. I don't really know if the dosage was a mistake or not but I thank God I'm still here
If you start to feel stir-crazy or depressed let your doctor know so they can help you. Alot of the struggle we all have with UC is the mental aspect. Just stay knowing that you do have a life outside uc.
Blue gatorade and lollipops helped me through the all liquid stage for sure
Aaah and those little cups of orange sherbert! My hospital had the best ice cubes too haha. I know its cliched but I tried to look to even the stupidest things for comfort. I'm only 19 so I feel like I just can't despair yet. Thats not to say I don't every once in a while.
Has your doctor talked to you about
I can see your point about
surgery. I've even begun considering it. Everything takes so much time it seems, and then to not have it work just puts you down. In my opinion you should talk about
humira first. For some people its worked wonders right off the bat, and even others its taken longer but still a godsend. I
m still in wait-and-see mode, hoping its my answer.
