I have finally been found to be Chron's free!! Now that my diagnosis is officially UC again, I'm going to have J-pouch surgery to be rid of this disease for good! I just have to get new insurance first (yay for ohio HIPPA!) and then i can start seeing surgeons. i find it kinda funny that people are like, UC is a good thing? don't you want to be able to keep your colon? Heck no! i say, this is a cure and I'm on my way to new found health!
-diagnosed with UC Dec 2006 at 22
-allergic or intolerant to all 5ASAs, sulfa and 6-mp
-emergency transverse colostomy on 9/13/10 from perforated colon
-J-pouch surgery TBD (hopefully in January!)
