My Son Has Ulcerative Colitis
Our son is 22 and was diagnosed with severe Ulcerative Colitis in May of 2010. He has been on prednisone and Apriso for the past year and Imuran was also added to the list 5 months ago. As soon as he gets the prednisone lowered to 10 mgs his bleeding starts all over again. Then he has to up the prednisone and it takes months to get it lowered again, only to start all over again. Does anyone have any suggestions? We need help.
