Well, I was busy today and did not look at the website until now. My mom came into town yesterday and we were out and about today, having a good time.
I did not post to get a reaction. I was simply giving an update for those that requested it last year when I chose to go off the medications.
I also never said that the disease was gone. But, I have been off the medications for almost a year and my pathology report showed improvements (with no signs of colitis) rather than increased inflammation. I think that's very good news! My GI said that he has patients that do well without medications and some that do not. He is supportive of my approach.
You aren't the Original Poster...that was my statement.
You have lymphocytic colitis and not UC?
