Hopefully this medication will help with healing the lowest part of my colon - the most difficult area to heal from what I have read. Maybe this could be an option that some of you may want to try as a safer treatment option .
- IMPORTANT NOTE TO MENTION - This form of steroid does not produce the horrible side-effects that come with oral prednisone (aka - satans tic-tacs).

This is a very good thing!!
