Sorry, hope you get better soon.
By the time they discovered my IBD it was already pancolitis...I am on Pentasa 8 per day which keeps me about
50% under control and if I use cortifoam daily/regularly I'm about
My last scope in mid Oct showed no IBD at all, not even a trace yet the one before that in May '07 showed moderate to severe IBD and now just 2 months after my perfect scope I'm bleeding and having very painful spasms again after some BM's which can last all day.
If I can continue to tolerate my UC I will give science a few more years to come up, not with a cure, but a much better treatment for those of us with this disease. I do believe that science has recently isolated one of the main causes of this disease (GLI1 Protein or lack thereof) so if the research continues to back it, we might just have a real treatment sometime in the near future.
The "good news" is we are blessed to have UC vs CD where we at least have the option of curing ourselves and having much more of a normal life without a colon than being so sick with one.
I'll keep you in my prayers as I try to do for everyone who is sick...myself included lol
Hang in there and although it's very hard whn we feel so bad, please try to stay positive : )
