Hi...it's good you have a definitive diagnosis. Because it's in the colon, many of the meds used for UC are used for Crohn's colitis.
pb4 has crohn's colitis and frequents this board as well as the Crohn's board. She'll be a good resource for you.
The Crohn's board will be one where you'll learn about
CD, meds, other treatments, etc.
Keep us posted as to how you're doing. What meds has the doc suggested for you?
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
