I had 18 months no meds and in remission. Starting Remicade tomorrow so i guess i'll now have a longest in remission while on drugs. Well...if it works anyway. :P
dx late April 2005 with pancolitis UC after birth of my son (second child)... meds didn't work (or rather they would work and then randomly stop)
Started SCD and vit e enemas 12/9/05...that and meds = remission 12/11/05, off meds 12/20 (were on the way out before that), stopped continuous enemas 3/23 and use them only when I feel a flare coming on.
Beautiful perfect baby boy born with no drugs and only vit e enemas during pg - 10/14/07
He also had no gas or discomfort while nursing from me being on the diet.
Didn't use the enemas last flare since I was nursing and regretting it now, wasted time in the hospital with drugs that did nothing but ravish my body, now on my own and almost better... vit e, weaning pred, licorice
