Hello. I’ve recently been diagnosed with Pan Colitis at 23 after having constant bloody diahirra and then a colonoscopy. It’s been really hard dealing with this. I was started just on prednisone steroids (40mg a day) for a few weeks. Then my doctor started me on Azathioprine (AZT 100mg) and Humira while I tapper off steroids. It’s been a little over two weeks on AZT and Humira and I’m not seeing much improvement (other than the bleeding stopped while on just steroids). I’m still going to the bathroom with diarrhea 6-8 times during the day, plus I’m up about
every 2 hours at night. People keep saying it can take weeks to months to see improvement. Is this true? This is all new to me and no where online do people talk about
how long it took them to get to remission. I just want to go back to normal life since I’m on leave from work but starting to feel like this isn’t working. Could anyone share your story of your diagnosis and your journey to remission and how long it took? Any stories or tips (that aren’t commonly found) for UC for me would be greatly appreciated!
