I agree with both of you totally. My poor husband has been so understanding. It can't be easy for him when I get in my "moods". Not only is the disease bad enough to cope with but the prednisone, Cort enemas, 6MP, Colazal and Canasa...all those meds!
It has got to be hard on you young people. I didn't get ulcerative proctitis until I was 52 yrs old, now I am 63. Up until I was 52 I never took more than a vitamin.
I used to enjoy spending time with my grandkids.....now they get on my nerves!
Guess it is best to TRY to stay positive...but it isn't easy.
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare. Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count. Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.
