Only thing I am a little scared about is the course of action. Going back on pred at beginning, with a taper off after a month or so on it. Uceris bumped my weight up almost 20 lbs to 178. Was on it for 6 months. Been there for months. I am 5'11". Most of this extra weight is just ole belly fat. I have turned 40, BUT always a constant 158-160. Pred ALWAYS puts on at least 15 lbs. No way I can do that, lol. Not sure if jumping on a bike is enough to counteract pred weight or not. I will skip it altogether if I have to. I do have enough Uceris stored up to do a morning and evening pill instead of using prednisone. May be less destructive but not sure of effectiveness.
