Trying to figure out if there is anything in common.
Quite smoking 1977,UC proctitis 1980 ate SAD.
Other possibles causes,Korea 1971 in the Army got a 2 week case of the runs,felt something tare burned for 3 days then stopped. Many shots in the army,for every disease they had a vaccine for.
Came back to usa 1972 emergency surgery for rectal abscess,healed then turned into fistula's had for years.
Dated girl with Crohn's arouind same time.
Shook hands with Eisenhower when I was two, he had Crohn's.
Grandparents on one side eastern europe,other side english,irish,welsh mix.
Oh yea almost forgot,my father was a house painter,I cleaned his brushes and rollers from about 12-18,years old.
I was soaked in paint thinner,and back then probably a lot of lead based paint.
Plus I was a lubricant chemist,so handled mineral oils for the past 35 years.
My son 2000, lost colon to UC rescue meds,no effect. He was 21 SAD with a lot of meat.
When he was 16 my other son had strep,son who lost colon came down with a case of Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) right then I thought his immune
sys might be a problem. To bad I was right.
Just prior to his UC for acne,he was on tetracycline and isotrentonin cream.
This is also of course a link.
You guys probably have not much in common with what I have said but would be interesing to see
if others have anything in common.
