i do take it daily yes. the cramping is that bad.
last 4 days though i have not needed it and have not seen any blood. which is unheard of for me so im pretty stoked.
it usually takes me 45 minutes to recover from a bowel motion.
and i vomit the pain is so bad as well.
since im preggers, ive been splitting my painkillers and only take a quarter at a time. they are 5mg pills.
but when im flaring bad, i take probably 4 whole ones a day total at the most.
steph - 33 - female - gold coast australia - UC since 2000
i do believe im in NOT in REMISSION anymore! bugger!
seems to be milder than normal tho.... blood n mucous in mornings and almost normal in evenings!
IM now 22 weeks PREGGERS and feeling much better!
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day),
tapering pred by 5mg every 5 days, 20mg at the moment
pregnancy and breastfeeding vitamins, xango juice 30ml x3 a day, vitamin d3,
i still eat what i want, when i want, if i feel like eating at all ... diet doesn't affect my UC.
