I get so upset thinking about<strong></strong> this disease and why it has never really been pushed for a cure like breast cancer or other diseases and I'm a freakin nurse!!! He is taking lialda (4 pills) daily along with 40 mg of prednisone. The doc tried to wean him off Prednisone with the first 5 days of being put on it. He never stopped with the bloody diarrhea. Now doc is looking at putting him on 6-MP. As an oncology nurse, I'm not happy at all! We are looking at aloe vera juice (pure), probiotics, liquid vitamins, protein, ginger, ginseng, and other minerals. Does ANYONE have any suggestions other than moving straight into these horrible drugs? Is there no other alternative medicine available for the sufferers of UC & Crohn's? My eyes have been <strong></strong>opened and I'm just sick about<strong></strong> it.
Hi - I'm sorry, Tray - I mistakenly deleted some of your post! I was going to simply say welcome and why don't you post this in a new thread to introduce yourself - you'll get more responses than you will tagging along on this old one.
So, forgive me please, - I'm going to try to repost this as a new thread and fill in the sentences that disappeared on my computer.
