My doctor doesn't put much stock in the "mild, moderate, or severe" stuff, mostly because it really depends on when the colonoscopy is done how bad the colon looks. He basically said that colitis is colitis is colitis and that the symptoms a person is experiencing really doesn't seem to correlate with how extensive or bad the inflamation is.
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
