61. Diagnosed with Crohn's in 2008. Pathology from colectomy changed diagnosis to UC. I have secondary Addison's from too long and too high of doses of Prednisone. I have to remain on 5 mg. of Prednisone for life now with some long term effects. Episodes of pouchitis getting a little more frequent. I do sports and the frequency gets limited from inflammation. We all have so many unique experiences on this journey.
Be careful doing sports, high intensity stuff can cause consequences, so be careful. And sorry to hear about all of that and the Prednisone, make sure to take calcium/ vitamin D supplements. Prednisone can cause bone side effects.
Do you get depressed when taking Prednisone??? It makes me depressed.
