My name is Katherine Im 28 years old and was diagnosed Oct. 2012 by a sigmoidoscopy test. I was having a "flare up" at the time so I had to wait until March 2013 to have my colonoscopy. In that time I was on 60mg of Predinose and had every side effect possible and just miserable. I stopped taking the steriods April and then they put me on Mercaptopurine and got horribly sick so they took me off. Im now been gluten free for the past two weeks and was feeling amazing until these last couple days been going to the bathroom non stop again. Hoping it will not be another flare up because the GI MD wants me to go on the injections and I really do not want to do that
