I see you started flaring again in Nov. Are you still flaring? Is anything helping you? I have a friend who took 6MP for ten years and it kept her in remission. However, her doctor took her off the med last summer and she went into a flare quickly thereafter. She was on a short course of prednisone along with Asacol (maintenance med) and is having success with Rowasa enemas and VSL#3. Hope she can maintain the remission.
I am still sorry that my doctor never mentioned LDN and he was not a proponent of any probiotic. I did take Powerdolphilus which I ordered online. He was aware that I took it but said he didn't think it would have any affect, and it didn't..lol. Oh well, we try anything when we can't get out of flares, don't we?
Surgery should be, and was my, last resort. I must say all the meds took a toll on my overall health....especially the prednisone.
