So, I have been living with UC for the past 6+ years now. It seems that every medication I try, stops working after a few months. Have been on and off Prednisone for the last 6 years, tried Remicade, tried Humira, tried pretty much everything. It is getting to the point where I am seriously considering surgery and would like to meet with a surgeon in the Denver area. Does anybody know a good surgeon in the Denver area? My doctor recommended me to one a few months ago, but I don't remember his information. I'm going to call my doctor again to get that name, but was wondering if you guys had any ideas of good surgeons.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

You might want to post this in the General Discussion forum at www.j-pouch.org Lots more, over 6000 jpouchers on that site and someone is bound to provide you with a recommendation.
