Another newbie here asking a question....I was diagnosed with UC in August of 2008. I was treated with prednisone and mesalamine ememas. It worked like a charm and I was happy and symptom free until 11/09. Thats when I started to to have a flare up again and being the hard headed person I am I just thought it would get better and didnt really tell my GI specialist. But of course it got worse and I had my second colonoscopy 2/10, which showed some progression of the disease and patchy lessions, started prednisone and Rowasa again. That worked fine until I got to about 10mg of the predisone, when the bleeding, constant urge and other symptoms returned. So, my GI doc started me back on the mesalamine enemas and gave me a script for 400mg Asacol 3X a day. First couple of days not to bad, then starting this past Tuesday I have started having the worst symptoms yet! Totally watery diarrhea up to 20X a day, severe abdominal cramping/pain, and today a fever of 100.2. My GI is testing me for C diff.....so I to make a long story short I just wanted to see if anyone else has had any experiences like mine??
Thanks in advance :)
