I am not trying to bore you or anybody else reading this. Imuran healed me colon, fast and efficiently. I had pan colitis with a lot of bleeding, diarrhea, urgency, cramping, etc... After just 6 months of the Imuran my colon was 90% healed and my UC has just gone away in terms of symptoms. We were monitoring my bloodwork very often in the early stages and the Imuran kicked in right around the 4-6 week mark. I have been on it for about
a year and a half and I haven't had any side effects at all. I will be having a colonscopy in a couple of months and my doc and I expect to see a 100% healed colon. My doc says that Imuran has worked wonders for me, my UC is in remission in terms of histological and clinical remission.
So I would say it worked for me. My doc says he has about a 1500 patients taking it at the present and all have been doing well on it.
Have faith and be patient.
