Thanks! I was put on steriods back in June on my first bad flare. Things totally cleared up, and I went down gradually over a month to 7.5 mg and things remained fine. However, when I dropped to 5mg, symptoms came back. I tried going back up to 7.5/10/15 but I just got weird mucus problems and things never really fixed. The idea this time is to start at the top again, come down to maybe 10mg, and then wait for the 6-MP to kick in (which I should be starting soon). I'm a little nervous about this 6-MP stuff - hope I don't have some weird reaction to it.
Symptoms started 10/06, diagnosed 4/07
Currently on Prednisone, which helps
No help from Rowasa, limited help from hydrocortisone enemas
Bad reactions to Colazal and Lialda
Diet mostly: whole grains, pasta, potatos, rice, mashed root vegetables, green/fruit drinks, fish, lactose-free dairy, peacans, smoothies, bananas.
