I'm just curious when you mentioned in your response to icanrace about the Asacol that you stopped your med and your left sided turned into Pan.  You didn't have no symptoms at all???  You had no clue that it had spread?  What were your symptoms that made you decide to go back on medication?

I didn't notice any symptoms for 5 years. Then, as I was about to start my student teaching (august 06) i started having more bm's and some pain with a bit of D. I called my Gi because I wanted to head anything off before it got a chance to get really bad, he did a scope and said I was inflamed and my UC had spread. I went back on asacol and rowasa. Then in dec 06, after my student teaching, I went full on flare. 30 trips a day, blood, pain, it was like a switch went off.

Through the few months that i was on rowasa and asacol my symptoms stayed about the same but I must admit i was way too busy to notice anyway. it was my last semester of school I was busy 70 hrs a week. I think that as soon as I was able to sit down and take a breath is when it really hit me. It's like my body knew I needed to keep going for just a little while longer. But my Gi told me it was pan before the heavy symptoms started.

It was later in 07 that i had another scope that we discovered strictures as well. I'm still working on remission. I have another scope coming up in the next few weeks becuase I just can't seem to kick the pain and d. plus about 6 trips to the potty a day. Oh and steroid dependent. I've been on pred since jan of last year.

I was rather suprised when he told me how bad my uc had gotten becuase I had so few symptoms at that time. Now i see. The inflamation had spread but didn't get too severe until later.

I would've thought that if the Uc has spread then the symtpoms would match it. Hmm goes to show you that Uc is a tricky thing huh? Thank you for answering my question. I was just curious is all :)

No problem. I agree, I thought it strange too.
