I only see mine every couple of years now, for a colonoscopy. She will write scrips for Asacol refills and for prednisone or Rowasa when I ask. No infusions. It takes months to get a regular appointment, what good would that be? I know she is probably busy with folks who are in crisis, and that's not me.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.

August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Tested gluten intolerant and started gluten-free, soy, dairy-free diet. Replete probiotic.
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!?
Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & now recovering from irritation scope caused. Will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
