I simply want to introduce myself. I have been reading many posts, but have never signed up...until now.
I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with UC in March of 2008. I believe it is confined to the left side, but my gastro told me he didn't want to go any further with the scope b/c I was becoming "uncomfortable." The only thing I take right now is nine balsalazide per day. I've been doing o.k. for about two months now (knock on wood).
Anyway, just wanted to say hello and that i pray for everyone that has this disease or any other disease. Also, thanks to the people who love and support us. No medicine could ever replace the curing ability a loved one possesses.
Take care everyone,
