I am still on prednisone but i am overall feeling pretty good. 1 BM a day or every other day. I can pretty much tell it is a certain food (greesy foods and raw veggies) that sends my stomach into urgency and loose stools. I have not had blood in 2 months! I am really hoping my stomach holds after I am off the pred. If symptoms come back then I have to go for another colonoscopy to see what the problem is. I will also have to go to Remicade or Humira and I really don't want to go that route. I am really hoping the Asacol HD does the trick to keep me feeling good. I even started working out! I need to lose the 15 pounds I have put on from the prednisone...ugh...what an ugly drug but it got my inflammation in control.
