You guys who are taking or have taken 6MP - have you had any pancreas problems - pain, gas, fatty stool, etc.  I think that is what is going on.  I don't have a gallbladder but feels like the attacks I used to have.  And, this morning realizing the "mucous" in my stool is probably "fat".  I have a call in to the doctor but may not hear until Monday.  He increased my doseage 8 days ago from 50 mg. to 75. and then started the "attacks" - gas, pain around middle where my bra fits, etc.
Senior - New diagnosed with proctosigmoiditis - 6/2008  Cannot tolerate mesalamines, Canasa, etc. Tried, Colozal, steroid enemas, etc. - started working but severe side effects occurred.
Started on prednisone Feb.7, 2009 - tapering to 20 mg. for two more weeks. Bleeding returned - no call back from doc so I upped prenisone to 25mg. on my own - 6MP - 50 mg. 4/2/2009
