Reply to "Am I really ready for J-pouch surgery?"

Oh yes.... the GI's still use those enemas. Hydrocort worked really well in conjunction with the Prednisone I was taking last October... at least for awhile. By November, I started with a flare so bad that it wouldn't allow me to hold it long enough to have an effect on me ;o( I was very upset about not being able to hold it. I even thought this time around that I would try to use it again when/if I go back on Prednisone after I meet with the surgeon. I am alergic to sulfa drugs, but I also took the non-steroidal enemas (Rowasa??) a few years ago. They didn't do anything for me but it was worth a try. NO to the fecal/bacterial enemas or capsules. I do currently use VSL#3 (one in a.m. and one packet in p.m.). But VSL#3 (introduction of the bacterias does not put anything into remission). I can't see where it's done anything positive or negative. I mix it with applesauce or yogurt!! Good stuff.
Thanks for the information though. Keep me in mind if you hear of anything else please. That fecal transplant just doesn't even sound right. I read somewhere where a guy went to another country and ate a certain type of worms for a week!! This type of treatment wouldn't sit well with me either!! LOL However, he swears it puts him into remission and he flies out on a regular basis. I will try to find that article again it was quite odd... but if we could fly those worms in and put them in a pill form, I would consider it!
