Well, I've been on pred for a little over a week now, and boy, has it ever made a difference. I started last week on Monday and by Tuesday only had four BMs, which was less than half of what I'd been having. Since then, I've only had one or two BMs a day, and they've been normal consistency since Friday, and that's even with adding lots of fruits and veggies back in my diet!! :)
It's just weird, though, actually having to work to get poop out again! Even when my symptoms mysteriously eased in December (before I was diagnosed), I still had really loose stool, so didn't have to "work" at it.
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly,
40mg 30mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
