Thank you to all who talked about
I am a former very heavy (2 pack a day)smoker,now dealing with copd.
I was not diagnosed with UC until several years after I quit smoking. I believe I had UC for years and it flared each time I had quit smoking in the past, but by the time I had a colonoscopy, the flare was over or I started smoking again.
I would love to try the patch, but am afraid I will want to start smoking again. Quitting was so hard. But I cannot get this UC under control. Former smokers now on the patch, what has your experience been?
2+ yrs with UC. Tried Apriso, canasa, predisone & others. Currently on 6mp & Remicade - 6th infusion does not seem to work anymore
