finally seeing some formations in my stool rather than just bloody or green D. I want to jump for joy!
I know the pred is helping my kidney, so I wonder if it really took a month for it to start to help my colitis or if it's the hydrocortisone or cipro.......I did stop the mesalamine cold turkey on 9/6 so maybe that is why I went into such a horrible flare. I know I am not out of the woods yet but I want to know what is helping me.
anyone else have pred take a month to help their colitis (I thought it was supposed to be fast acting)? Maybe it's a combo of all 3???
