I'd suggest you ask these questions to a doctor. We're spending time answering your questions and then you rephrase the question and ask it again.
I'm done with answers within this thread, i wish you luck Jack.
Another online forum I frequent (not UC related) has a tradition that on Wednesday we tell people exactly what they want to hear. If someone doesn't like what they're told by the group, they are asked to return on Wednesday, when they will get the answers they want.
So in that spirit, and because it's Wednesday, I will now tell Jack that
- the military won't care a bit about
- he will keep growing like a beanstalk, to the point where NBA recruiters will be flying to the UK, and
- it's all probably nothing
Late 50's male, dx'd with UC in 2003. Standard therapy is now Lialda and Canasa suppositories, prednisone for really bad flares. Green tea and cranberry extracts and saw significantly improved gas and mucus. Started Humira Sept. 2016. Now in substantial remission, thanks to the Humira and am tapering off the other meds.
