  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • I suffer from UC for 8 years, the past 2 years I have had many flare ups, so I am almost Steroid dependent, as they are the only thing that works. So to get off Steroids, i have tried Azathiopran (didn't work caused severe side-effects) then 6MP, (also failed due to lowering my WBC and caused me to become Neurtaphinic and i caught C-Diff), so I am now trying Methotrexate, but I got a blood clot on the lung (4 weeks ago). After I came out of hospital for a week, I was given Warfarin tablets (3 weeks ago) and ever since I've taken them, I have not passed ANY stools naturally. I went 8 days with no movement, so ended up using Microlex Enema to release some, which works, but I have been using them every day for the past 13 days as its the only thing that gets me 'going', only only some soft stools slide out (look normal and soft), so am I constipated or do I have a blockage, or are these drugs stopping me from having the "urge" to go. My belly is ever so bloated, tight and aches a little.
    I am only 10.5 stone and 36 years old, I have a swollen face too....
    I've only taken 3 doeses (one a week) of Methotrexate, so I think it is too early for any side affects of this drug to kick in yet (I began the Warfarin on the Friday and the Methotrexate on the Monday (3 weeks ago)...
    Help please?.... as all the consultants and doctors say is "Try enemas and water etc bla bla...." but I am now dependent on the Microlex enema to go...
