My UC is slowly getting better and I havn't been on prescriptions for a long time now. If you've read any of my past posts you all probably know I have a severe case of colitis with my entire colon infected. As soon as I can get insurance due to the "pre-existing" clause I will be able to have another colonoscopy which I have a very strong feeling it will look way better than my initial one 4 years ago and will totally surprise my GI. I have also recently gained about 6 pounds so I know I'm doing better. I'm at 146 now.lol I started taking OmegaXL a couple weeks ago and have been using as suggested and must say I'm seeing positive results. I have tried a lot of meds and things and of couse when you have UC you can become very skeptical to anything and everything out there but I have been waiting to see what happened with the omega 3's before I posted it here. I have seen my blood and mucus decrease and have been able to stray from my usual diet which has been good litteraly, but I need to start eating healthier again. And yes I need to revise my sig below so maybe today.
