I only found this board last month and was diagnosed (mistakenly?) with UC during a colonoscopy. I had a case of diarrhea, I'm 39 and have never had diarhhrea, for 2 weeks. I was given a colonoscopy and was told without that the GI could look and tell I had UC, however when the pathology results came back, no UC.
I am taking the asacol and have no side effects. I still am able to eat what I want although I have cut back on cheese and milk.
I am scheduled to have some blood work done.
Any help or experiences would be wonderful.
