15 year UC, only one major flare three years ago, and here we go again. Came on like a freight train in about 3 days, thought was just a food indiscretion. Morning clustering and today, slight blood.
With the pandemic, cannot even get a PHONE APPT with doc until July 13, outrageous when trying to tackle a flare ASAP. Have calls into 2 other new GI groups nearby.
Started Rowasa last night. Have some prednisone in reserve from last time.
THOUGHTS? Def keep the rowasa going but should I hit it with 40 mgs of pred right away if I can't get an answer? Have had small hiccups in the past but I think this is the real deal - last flare my doc waited WAY too long on the enemas before starting prednisone.
