Congratulations on your good health! I'm lucky in that my body responded very well to Asacol. I was diagnosed on 10/31/05, and after 5 days on Asacol was able to leave the house, take my DH to dinner for his b'day, and was about
75% symptom free. I'm still on Asacol and probably will be for the duration.
Good to see success stories here and to know that a "normal" life is possible. I just wish everyone could be so fortuneate!
UC Diagnosed 10/31/05
2400 mg Asacol
Daily vitamin, iron, flax seed oil, emu oil, calcium
Not thrilled with the diagnosis, but grateful to finally know what it is and learning how to treat it.
