I just wanted to say that you're so young to be dealing with this. I was told I didn't have any UC after 6 weeks on asacol and rowasa and so I quit my meds the day the doctor said it was all gone. Actually he was amazed by my results in 6 weeks. He said I could get off the medication. He was a rectal doctor and maybe he didn't know I needed to take remission dosage. But I knew something still was not right b/c my stools were urgent and not formed. I've basically have been in a flare for two years now. Although, right now, I'm not on medication by a MD, I'm working with a naturalpath.
What caused your UC do you think?
