So, I was bleeding very heavily and then went NPO for a sigmoidoscopy. The bleeding stopped, but the scope showed severe inflamation due to UC as I have stated before. They put me on a predinsone taper and I am on day 3 of the 30 mg. I had no blood after going NPO which was before starting the steroids, didn't see blodd when was on the 40 mg, but all of a sudden last night I began seeing traces of blood appear again. If the blood would have been there before the steroids I might have thought it was due to the taper down, but the bleeding stopped before I started the predinsone. I'm confused...... Any thoughts?
