Well, my son has pan colitis, 6'5" and thin 185pd. 40 yrs old
My husband has a milder colitis 6'2" 300pds 67 yrs old.
Son eats bland foods...very little.
Hubby eats whatever the heck he wants and lots of it.
So you see, even in families,, it can run a different course.
Son's is on lots of meds, and still gets flares,
Hubby is only on maintenance, 4 asacol a day, and 1 6-MP,
been in remission since he retired 8 years ago. Maybe only 2 bm's in morning. No pain, no blood.
Son, 6 to 8 a day, mucousy, cramping not to mention is
getting very depressed. Lives with us now. He's single and
feels he has no life, and won't go anywhere or do anything.
Has a new doctor with a colonoscopy this Friday. He'd like to try Remicade but has not insurance, but talked to PAP and they said he may qualify for help. We shall see.
