Re: Who can help me beatdown colitis?

Hey amato,
i just read your post and I'm glad you're winning the war against this thing. I am not sure how exactly mine started, it began in june/july, and i was doing intense basketball workouts as well as summer league and practices. I was taking a protein shake which may have had some effect, but i was very exausted through all the exercising i was doing. I was possibly taking a Antibiotic for wasn't anything too strong, but that could be a possibility. Anyways...around the 4th of july i just stopped everything and didn't do anything at all for at least a month and a half while the doctors ran stool samples, visits, and blood tests. Then in august i had the pleasure of having a colonoscopy done and my doctor found it was ulcerative colitis and perscribed me with Rosawa (mesalamine) enemas and Asacol (mesalamine) tablets which didn't really do much (bad or good) then when prednisone began a month or 2 later because the mesalamine wasnt working...thats when it all went to hell. I had a bad reaction to prednisone as far as side effects. I also ran a few infusions of remicade which didn't do much. All in all this first flare up is taking forever to end and i am hoping i can get it down and control it so it will be my last flare up. anyway let me know what helped you. thanks.
