Thier are several parents on this board with children with UC. I find that most of them don't post here very often as their are some Facebook private groups that many of the parents use.
I am sorry that you find yourslef here- it is not a fun place to be.
I hope you like your son's Pediatric GI and you feel like you are getting good care.
If you are on FB and want to leave me your name I can try to friend you and add you to the group.
Best of luck getting your son into a nice long remission.
Oh, my daughter is now 12 and we have been at this for 3 years-
her UC is still evolving and we are looking into next steps and meds at the moment as she is not in perfect remission as this time
