moosemalibu's Blog > 1 Week Into Mc Therapy

Posted 11 December 2014

I am a week into my Entocort steroid therapy for microscopic colitis. I can say that I have no discernible side effects from this drug. It has slowed down my bowel significantly. I am no longer running to the bathroom 8-10x/day. I probably go about half that amount now. The quality of the bowel movements has improved but it varies throughout the day. I ha...

Posted 11 February 2014

Well... my boyfriend is a HUGE 4x4 truck enthusiast. He has 2 rigs that are specifically for off roading purposes. Consequently we take these rigs to remote places and drive over lots of rocky terrain. He has rock crawler and a prerunner or something like that. It is very confusing keeping all the classes straight. It's his hobby that I support but not qu...
