Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday, Sherry! I've been lucky in being able to eat corn on the cob ever since I've been on Remicade. All of my favorite things - beans, Mexican food, high-fiber cereals - were the things that always made my flare so much more painful.
I'm delighted to be able to report to my GI when I see her that I made it through major surgery (including IV antibiotics) without a blip on the UC radar.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC diagnosed 2001.
Flared for 5 years, finally in remission with Remicade since March 2006.
Avascular necrosis in both shoulders is my "forever" gift from steroids.
