I had my first onset of blood in my stool and diarrhea back in March, 2010. I was diagnosed with UC in August after my colonosocopy. The really bad flare that came at the beginning of August was treated with antibiotics because the doctors where not sure of what was going on. By the time I had was diagnosed, I was already going into remission. It unfortunately flared back up at the beginning of October. The Doctors now have me on Colozal, Mesalamine suppositories and 40mg prednisone. I didn’t like the idea of being on prednisone and tried it for a week and stooped taking it. My symptoms became so bad that I went to kaiser Urgent care. Put me on a IV and gave me morphine. At this time I realized I better listen to the doctors and started my regime of Prednison again. This week I am finally feeling better and able to eat. In fact, I feel like I have a endless pit. I cant stop eating.
I hate the fact that I have to be on Prednisone. I’m hoping to go into remission and strating the SCD Diet. I used to have an active lifestyle. I have a full time job and teach Zumba. I am recently on short term medical leave.
So happy to find this website. Looking for inspiration and hoping to give some in the near future.
- Colozal, Mesalamine and Prednisone
- The Prednisone helped. the others didn’t seem to help any
