My name is Sally and I have lived in various countries, taking my ulcerative colitis with me where ever I go. Born in South Africa, my UC started in Canada, I was ok in England, diagnosed in Australia (6 years ago) and well, pooped in a plastic bag on my sister-in-law’s bedroom floor in a moment of desperation (and occupied bathrooms) in Brazil – fun! Now living in an apartment with 2 bathrooms – makes the world of difference!
Prednisone is another drug that is a steroid which is quite powerful. Many many ulcerative colitis patients are given this medication to help the inflammation of the colon. Its been around for a long time unlike some other new drugs.

Cynthia is scheduled for a colonoscopy on Feb. 3rd. She’s not looking forward to the gallon you have to drink to prepare…(who the heck is) AND, she most definitely doesn’t want prednisone due to the side effects it sometimes unleashes.
