Hi Kazy, sorry not much time to get on here this weekend. I was on pred for a monht and a half and I was still in a horrible flare then I went on the hydrocortisone e's and cipro and within 2 weeks my flare was much much better. about
3 weeks ago was when the bleeding stopped (after 1.5 mos of e's and nearly 3 mos of pred), I don't think the pred helped/is helping me much, I believe it is mostly the e's.
I've just started having semi normal bm's sometimes the past few weeks they are almost fully formed and they hurt sometimes. This past week, I had a flipping log and after that I felt like someone squeezed a lemon up my bum every time I had to go and it would generally hurt, just in my rectum. I just started to feel normal today and I did have a tiny amt of blood the other day, I don't know why, I think my bum was just sore and tired, but no blood since.....I was thinking maybe I had a hemi or something too. Today I feel much better and am hoping not to go thru that again.
I guess to make a long story short, I had a while of D, B, semi normal, yellow, green, semi normal, D, B prior to a few weeks ago, then it became more and more normal, every couple days, it was like that line in Forest Gump, except I felt like, "my poo is like a box of chocolates, I never know what I am going to get". I swear if I poop plaid I will not be surprised!
