since my bm's have jumped up to now 15 times a day since last week mostly blood and mucous and I have been on pred for two weeks, I contacted my GI and he is prescribing me hydrocortisone enemas. I did the rowasa previously and those greatly helped me my since my uc is in the lower part of my rectum.
I just googled it and it does say to be careful if you have kidney disorder but looks like it is from the angle of high blood pressure causing kidney problems and not the same as MCD. Will continue to look at today.
GI did talk to my nephrologist and says that maybe after I get MCD into remission can possibly try the mesalamine drugs again....maybe it is a coincidence, don't know if I want to ever chance that though.
Also, GI having me do a stool sample to rule out possible infection, b/c pred is not helping my UC as of yet.
So I will be taking even more steriods. Awesome! Maybe i'll turn into the Hulk!
Thanks in advance!
