I'm female. Diagnosed with pancolitis in May 2002 at age 50. Severe initial symptoms over about three months' time, including pain like I had sat on an icepick, diarrhea, much blood and mucous in stools, bad body aches.

Have been on at least three lengthy courses of prednisone, first one after initial diagnosis. Now taking Colazol.

I decided about nine months ago that it couldn't be good for my colon to eat meat and have it sit in my colon fermenting. So I gave up meat of all kinds except occasionally fish.

Have not had any flares since then and symptoms have been well controlled. (Still have frequent loose stools). Don't know if it's coincidence or not but I do not intend to test my theory.
