    Since starting prednisone like a week and a half ago my weight has dropped from a fairly muscular 225/228 to a frail and fat 213. (frail everywhere except my gut has became larger :ugh: )


    My bench has seriously fucking dropped from 270x3 to 195x3 in a week and a FUCKING HALF.


    Better still, it hasn't quieted down my colitis AT ALL. Now I have to go to my doc's on friday and get prescribed an anti-immune drug that might leave me succeptible to disease.

    I was doing so fucking well with my progress too. I swear to god all of my muscle just damn disappeared. :ugh2:

    Everyone has AIDS!
    AIDS AIDS AIDS!
    AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS!
    Everyone has AIDS!

    And so this is the end of our story
    And everyone is dead from AIDS
    It took from me my best friend
    My only true pal
    My only bright star (he died of AIDS)

    Well I'm gonna march on Washington
    Lead the fight and charge the brigades
    There's a hero inside of all of us
    I'll make them see everyone has AIDS

    My father (AIDS!)
    My sister (AIDS!)
    My uncle and my cousin and her best friend (AIDS AIDS AIDS!)
    The gays and the straights
    And the white and the spades

    Everyone has AIDS!
    My grandma and my dog 'ol blue (AIDS AIDS AIDS)
    The pope has got it and so do you (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
    C'mon everybody we got quilting to do (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
    We gotta break down these baricades, everyone has
    AIDS!

    That sucks though, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

    Damn bro that really sucks.Is you're doc giving you some 6-MP? That's the only anti-immune drug I've used for colitis.

    He hasn't said what it's called yet for some reason but I've researched and it seems that 6-mp is a pretty common treatment so I'd assume that's what I'll be going on.


    If this shit doesn't work I'm going to pop an Animal Pak , rip out my colon and threaten to military press that bitch into a tree until it cooperates.

    Yeah man I've always thought about taking something like Colonix but I'm not sure if it would even be beneficial...From what I've read, it helps with constipation and I can firmly say that constipation is NOT THE PROBLEM :o


    Still wouldn't mind a full cleanse just to see if there's some sort of creature or something in my colon :rofl:

    Goddamnit though it took me months to get my strength/muscle back (and more) and here it just all got pissed away again.


    It's annoying and depressing.

    Yeah it does suck but its better to get colitis under control and go back to pumping iron.You got to think of you're health first even though it sucks you have to suffer a setback like this.

    Life is always gonna throw some kind of shit in your face, you just gotta wipe it off and keep going.

    It sucks but you'll get back to where you were in no time. If I was in your position I'd be freaking out too, but it helps to have some perspective. Look at lifters who have suffered major injuries, broken backs, etc. If they can come back from it so can you.

    colon "cleansing" is the biggest crock of shit ever. its designed to rip off weak-minded people who have no idea how the human body works. in addition, it may make the intestinal inflammation worse and cause a complete blockage that will require surgical intervention to correct. I'd suggest talking to a doctor before you even attempt anything like that.

    That sucks man. I'm on prednisone and lots of other anit-immune drugs so I think I know how you feel. Hopefully this is only a bump in the road, not to preach, but you should feel a bit thankful that you were in pretty good shap going into this. You'd probably be far worse off if you got sick and oyu were pretty skinny.

    Do you have chrones or colitis? Because I heard that they've been testing a new drug for colitis and it cures the colities completely in like 75% of users and significantly decreases the effects of the disease in the remaining patients. Hopefully its not too far away from the market.

    Ulcerative colitis is what they think I have.


    Mind finding a link or something with information about this new drug?

    Hmm, I can't find what it was called, but you should ask your doctor. It was all over the news here about 2-3 weeks back.

    My doc was pissed that I was taking creatine when this happened so i don't think his reaction to "you know what I think I need? TEST!" would work out so well. :o
