I'm 32 years old with a 2 year old and a 4 month old. Diagnosed with UC in 2003 and fairly under control with Asacol until my first child was born. That flare was treated with Prednisone and we thought it was safe to get pregnant again. As soon as I was pregnant UC got even worse and I've been treating with A sacol and Prednisone since and need to get off the prednisone. Options are Remicade, which seems scary with the side effects, and surgery, which will be extremely difficult with two little ones. Any advice?
