Thanks for the info. Although you took a fair amount I dont think it was excessive. I have taken several medrol dose packs with some double strength over the last two years plus a solumedrol iv of 500 mg a day for 5 days to reduce terrible inflamation of my spinal nerves due to an epidural injection that went bad. I'm glad to hear you're off the pred and hope you continue to improve post op.
Dx'd with moderate Pancolits 05/07 better with Pentasa and rectal meds as needed.
I also take Probiotics, Fish Oil, Curcumin, Benefiber and cannot tolerate artificial sweetners (never could even before UC) I also stay away from products with high fructose corn syrup.
