Diagnosed with Severe Colitis

Hi , I was diagnosed with severe colitis two months ago.

I did not know what was happening to my body, lost a lot of blood and have been in the hospital twice in seven weeks.  My last hospital stay was two nights after a really bad flare up.  Doctors said my bowel was too swollen to even do the colonoscopy so I am on steroids now.  So far they are working.  I am also on Colifoam and enemas at night.  I have not touched alcohol and am on a low residue diet.  My only fear is that I finish the steroids in two weeks and then head back in for a colonoscopy, but I worry that it will all start again when I finish my medications.  I am also on Pentasa 2mg twice daily.

My Current Colitis Medications:

2mg Pentasa twice daily, Prednisolone 5mg, Calvepen 666mg four times a day, Colifoam and Enema
