the cost of my life insurance was supposed to go down after having the policy for 5 years without any problems with the UC. Well, when it was 5 years and I hadn't had any problems, was not even on any meds, I called and asked about
the price going down. They told me that the only way they would lower the cost of my policy was if I had my colon removed. What I said to them was pretty much X rated..............Talk about
complete morons............And this was before my last flare which began a little over 2 years ago. They have these idiot underwriters who look at a medical journal and make these decisions. At the time I told them even if I chose to have my colon removed, there wouldn't be a reputable doctor who would do it considering I was in a very long remission..
diagnosed with uc 27 years ago. Enojoyed 10 - 12 year remission (approximately 10 of those years without any meds)
currently on Sulfasalazine 2 tabs 3x day. Folic acid, mesalamine enema every 4th night, will try to spread it out more. Omega 3, Probiotics, multi vitamin, cacium supplement, Biotin....
In remission since Jan 2008, can't believe it.............
