was diagnosed in 1996, initially on Asacol, then moved onto Pentasa. during this passed a gall stone and had ulcerfuric acid for bile duct damage.
6 months ago annual checks found some polops - tested as benign, and just had colonscopy 19/5/08 which showed no further growths. Just now awaiting results as the surgeons want to remove large colon. Which frankly until they find malignant isn't going to happen.
What I have found is Pentasa gives me the runs, or constipation. however, last 2 months been taking the following course of treatments found (like most people by concerned relative) and never felt better, no bleeding and recovered from last colonscopy with multiple samples taken in 2 days.
1. Intestive - help regulate immune reactions
2. Primal defense - best natural bugs I could find in density you cannot get in the UK
3. Aloe Elite - course of too help tissue rebuild
What I have found great is a treatment I got from Isreal/US - which works on magentic field technology -not a bracelet -- but a professional system from B3K Usa. this system isn't cheap ($3k) but is a professional medical system.
Since going on the above - I have stopped bleeding ...... and stopped fully Pentasa with no side effects
The real change has been with the magnetic field technology -- if you want any details or want me to let you know how treatment is helping please reply to chain.
frankly the best thing since the above (especially magentic field treatment) is sleeping normally again and passing normal bowl movements twice and day with no urgency.... heck I spend more time just sitting in the mens room reading a motorbike mag (hobby) ... some habits never stop.
