Hi there - I posted "We're Back" with an update of our Mayo experience (Jacksonville)

We were impressed to say the least with the entire operation there and the fact that all the different doctors talking to one another and all the tests online etc. We are still waiting for his primary GI at Mayo to call this week but we will be seeing him again on Nov 7th.

And yes the imuran was increased from 75 to 150 -- could have gone as high as 200 but since the 75 mg seemed to help a lot over these past months he decided to just go to the 150 with monthly monitoring.

Flared again in May '06 (now UC) & hospitalized 5/07-currently heading towards a remission. Osteopena of spine from prednisone DX 8/07  Oct 07 feeling quite normal most days.  150mg Imuran 15 mg prednisone & tapering, 12 Asacol, Lidocaine Hydrochloride Jelly 2%,multi vitamin, iron 1X day, DanActive, chewable calcium, Prilosec 20mg, enalapril 10mg, glipizide 5 mg, zocor 20 mg, baby aspirin, (Fentanyl pain patch 50mg 72 hrs  Morphine Sulf 15 mg twice daily)Cortifoam enemas AM & PM, folic acid 1mg, Fosamax 1x month
