What's odd is that I have these little blips. I will do real well, no bleeding but I will have some left sided pain. And then I will start to bleed a little and the left sided pain goes away. Then I have a period in between where I don't have any symptoms other then D which is why I wanted to start on a fiber supp to see if it will help with that (I also have IBS). I'm at a standstill with my meds. I can't tolerate any sort of mesalamine (oral or rectal) and I can't increase my 6mp due to liver toxicity levels. So that only leaves me with steroids to help conquer a flare and I am very sensitive to steroids (cort or pred). So I've been basically dealing with the way things are and I'm ok with that. I don't feel sick and in fact, other then the fatigue, I feel pretty darn good gut wise. If and when I know that I am truly in an irreversible flare then I will contact the doc about steroid enemas.
