Well, my son anyway and his wife.  He is 45 and we are close.  I wrote to him about my scope and the story about drinking the blue berry and everything coming out blue.
He wrote to me to please just tell them how I feel and results, etc. - not so MANY details.  I only mentioned rectal foam - some people are just too squeamish - yikes!  One is my daughter in law so I suspect it was mostly her request.
I am so happy I can come here and speak freely!
Thanks,

Certainly good to come here where we can "talk" about anything and we all understand!

My husband is very compassionate, but I think if he ever looked in my toilet he would probably want to drag me to the ER.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, then Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
