what is fecal transplantation? I think I saw it on House, but refresh me?
I started with 40mg pred and up to 50mg (which helped a little - down to two to three bms a day) - thats when all the side effects started and I then tapered down to 2.5 at which point I flared and went back up to 12mg and after starting remicade a few mos later, tapered VERY SLOWLY down again and went off. I am now worse than I was before I started the prednisone, so I myself dont personally recommend it, but I guess you have to try anything. Stress is a big factor contributing to flare-ups. Maybe antidepressants to help?
PS the remicade hasnt helped after three treatments in 2.5 mos and am scared.
On Asacol 12/day and rowasa enemas. Tried cortifoam but didnt help me this time like before with the blood.
6-MP gave me BAD abdominal pain. Whats next I dont know.
