Hi everyone! I know it's been a long while, but I've been doing pretty good. Still taking my meds and watching what I eat. I hope you all have been doing well or as well as expected.
I just had my routine colonoscopy. The results were stable colitis. I was dx with UC back in 2001 and all the years that I've been having colonoscopies, I've never had him come back and say the test results came back at "stable colitis". Does anyone know what that means? I'll have to call on Monday to find out...but they said all was good and I don't need another colonoscopy for another 2 years.
dx Pancolitis, mild, w/more activity on left side & IBS
12 Asacol a day; 1 Rowasa at night during flare/1 a week during remission; Nexium; Probiotic; Multi-Vitamin; Flax Seed Oil
UC manifesting to other organs: joints, eyes (Iritis) & skin (Erythema Nodusom)
Controlling w/MEDS & DIET (eliminating animal protein, white flour, sugar, dairy, eggs, & nightshade veggies)
Current Status: 12/22/07 Ending 2 month flare & heading into remission - no blood, D or other symptoms since 12/22/07 Keeping fingers crossed!
