Sorry to hear of all you are suffering with bbc. I had several problems with abscessed teeth while on prednisone this past year. Cipro was the antibiotic of choice along with Flagyl of course.
When I am in remission my colonoscopy shows no sign of UC either. Weird, isn't it?
But when I am flaring...oooooh boy! They had to use a pediatric scope on me while I was hospitalized, couldn't get the adult one up there because of the inflammation.
Hope you are feeling better real soon. Try to have a nice Christmas.
62 yr old granny. South Jersey
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital

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.
