Was diagnosed with UC May of 2015 and was prescribed Apriso as my main med and prednisone for a steroid for I think 8 weeks. Had a flare up in February where at work I felt nauseated and threw up and then once at home had me waking up due to pain every 2-3 hours while sleeping. I admitted myself to ER due to pain...Was prescribed more prednisone for a week and nausea medicine as needed. Having been having another flare up for about 3 weeks now. GI doctor put me on Uceris for 2 months. I'm still seeing blood in bowel movements, stool are still loose and sometimes formed. Last night had abdominal pain that almost had me admit myself to the ER again. I have an appt with GI doctor next Wed. Should I consider J-Pouch surgery? I know that others may have flare ups all the time and more frequently. I just don't want to have to endure pain, blood, etc every 9 months. Doctor said that Uceris will take a week for symptoms to taper off.
