It seems to have helped immensely. I suppose it could be the Mesalamine, too. Either way, I am almost symptom-free. 1-2 bms a day, no pain or urgency. I saw a tiny spot of blood Monday morning and possibly one today (so small it's difficult to tell
I am cautiously optimistic. I'm keeping in mind the possibility that my symptoms could return when I'm off the Prednisone.
