but anyways... Kazy.. if your pain is so bad that you have to take those every 4 hours... why don't you try a different medication? I see that you just got off prednisone... why if you're still in a flare?? What kind of UC do you have....do you take any rectal meds to try and battle the flare?
i have been on different meds. so many different meds its crazy.
i am back on 40mg of prednisolone at the moment.
waiting on blood tests to start imuran.
taking 3g of mesalazine granules.
tumeric, fish oil, vitamin d3, and various other things including 6 hour iron infusions from the massive blood loss.
ive tried all sorts of pain killers and the pain is bad. even with the oxycontin.
what medication do you suggest? by the way?
my last flare went away with pred and it cleared up until i quit smoking and the week after my last pred pill it came back.
so there you go.
i dont know the state of my colon at the moment cuz i just started flaring really bad last few weeks. but it feels like most of it is pretty bad. but i dont know for sure. i just know how i feel.
and who cares what junkies say. im not a junkie and people with serious illness who need pain management aren't junkies.
i was worried about
addiction at first, but the pain is bad, and i iwll deal with addiction later rather than pain now thank you.
and after doing this 3-4 times already with oxycontins, i am not addicted to them and have not had a problem stoppign them completely when i was finished and in remission. so im not worried anymore.
although i still dont take a whole pill as prescribed every 4 hours (i keep it at half pill) its because i dont want it to get worse and have to take more than one. now i have some leeway if its super duper bad i can take up to the proper dose.
whatever. maybe im stupid.
but dont tell me to try new meds when ive tried everything ever prescribed to me thanks.
Woah...Kazy... I wasn't trying to insult you. I giggled at that line.. I know you didn't mean it that way.. it's just where my mind went..sorry?
I asked those questions cuz at the time I didn't see an updated signature...forgive me? I had no idea what your history was.. that's why I was asking. Now that I know I'm sorry you've had such a tough time... I wasn't aware that you've tried so many medicines okay? Next time please don't snap at me .. I promise I was only trying to help.
BTW I would NEVER call you a junkie or anyone else on here for that matter... even if they did have a problem with addiction. I'm not rude.

Medications:Prednisone 20mg, Lialda 2 twice a day, Align probiotic, Hyomax as needed.
I am so sick of this disease!
