    You have my every sympathy. Working and IBD simply doesnt work.

    I have colitis I am 64 this year I hoped to carry on till 70 because I like my job. But I can't. It's a shame because my skills are in demand.

    I can't comment on your meds but they soind about right. Watch those steriods though.

    In hospital they gave me a high dose of steriods because I was suffering from dementia due to septic shock, I came out of a coma fighting fit and took a swing at a doctor.

    I dont know how old you are, I feel the younger you are the worst it is. At least I can simply retire and collect a pension.

      Hi Bob thanks for the kind words, yes this disease can be soul destroying and taking all those drugs does help some but not happy in regards of the steroids. I am being monitored by my go while I await the appointment with a consultant to go over future plans.

      anyway hope things work out for you

      thanks John
