Thanks momto2boys. Honestly, I had never heard of discontinuous inflammation in UC until now (always associated that with Crohns) and in my case inflammation never went beyond the rectum so was a little confused and surprised. After the colonoscopy/biopsy results my doctor told me that everything looks good and mentioned the patch - when I asked if there was anything to be concerned about
he said no and said that the next usual follow up appointment would be in 6 months and next scope after 3 years. But I plan to ask about
the meds I'm taking and what his thoughts are about
making any changes. I noticed in your signature that you're taking curcumin and I think I need to add curcumin and a probiotic in my daily routine now. Is there a certain brand that you like or that has helped keep your UC under control? The links below were shared by another member here when I was asking about
supplements a few months ago but thought I'd ask you as well.
Me! I had a cecal patch with general inflammation to 24 cm when I was diagnosed and had the same redness near my appendix as well. It wasn’t there in my last scope, just sign of old inflammation to 26 cm. I take colazal and imuran now and use either sfRowasa or Canasa as needed these days.
