Well, most symptoms of UC gone - no blood, D or pain.  Little discomfort and gas but mostly I am concerned about the amount of mucous on outside of BM - not much separate and firm stool, etc.  Aside from the moonface, weight gain (munchies) and some nausea early morning I feel pretty good.  Looking forward to tapering prednisone (now 25 mg.)  Wondering if it is time. Waiting for blood test results next week from 6MP.  Only other things I notice is foamy urine some and very light colored stool when I am not taking pepto bismal.

I hope you can get off the pred soon!!!! :)
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?
