Hi, I've been diagnosed with colitis since 2002. Ive has flare ups but not a major one until 7 months ago. From January to May I was on steroids and pentaza. I'm now taking Azathioprine (one tablet every other day) as well as pentaza. I still don't feel 100%, as sometimes my stools are still watery with slight blood loss. I just feel I'm not progressing and it gets me depressed. I know things take time but it's just disheartening.
