I was dx'd w/mild colitis 7 years ago and besides a few small flares have basically been fine, even when I am flaring, I can make it to the bathroom, its mostly just embarrasing when It's really loud and annoying when I stay with friends of friends who don't know and I have been holding it in for 5 hours praying I can get the bathroom and surrounding area by myself to let out the symphony of destruction (what it sounds like..gas puncuated by stools).
Right now I have changed meds a couple of times so I am still flaring on a scale of my 1 to 10, probably at a 5 or 6 today, but my 5 or 6 could be someone else's 1 or 2.
I am hoping this will get under control very quickly now w/the prednisone. I did great on the 5ASA's but can no longer take them
