So as I mentioned a week or so ago, the Doctor has bumped be back up on the Pred to 40mg daily for two weeks. It's been about 10 days now and i'm noticing improvements, but no-where near as good asthe last time.
Blood gone, but cramping still there, along with slight C . Last time I had such a huge dose, BM were back to normal within 3 days and I was feeling great. Having 5-6 BM per day, but nothing major moving if you know what I mean. I've stopped the Iron in case that was not helping, but no improvement yet...........
I'm wondering if it's working as well, or am I being impatient?
another Question, if i'm suffering a little from C, will that have a bd effect on the Asacol as it can't get to the source of the problem if you know what I mean? (Proctitis) .
