I get the downy hair that tums describes on my cheeks and chin. I didn't notice it much but my daughter put her hair removal stuff on my upper lip (beginning to grow a mustache..lol) and she noticed the downy hair. Funny that when I went through the change of life the hair under my arms stopped growing and still doesn't grow with the prednisone. Where we don't want the hair..it appears.
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.
