Wow, what a load of hooey. I think it's hilarious they didn't tell you how to get tested for the "UC virus."
Also, if UC were caused by a virus, it would be contagious. I think we can all agree it most certainly isn't contagious! :)
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 every other night, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
