I’m on my third day of IV solumedrol 60mg. It has definitely helped, the frequency has been cut in half, I went 8 hours today without a poo, although they are still watery and bloody. Far cry from the oral 40mg pred I was on for a week before though. They want to put me back on that oral dose tomorrow. Their logic is that I got my first remicade dose a few days ago and I should be fine off the IV steroids. But, I can feel the frequency and cramping start to return at night so I think it’s the IV steroids keeping things at bay. I really want them to do at least another two days of IV steroids, maybe even at a reduced dose of 40 or 50, before sending me back home on oral. I really want to make it to that second remi infusion. That’s basically my last hope before I get surgery. Any thoughts?
