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?
I had the Rocephin shot and 2 weeks of Omnicef, this helped with my bloating and digestion. That was 4/15/07
Had Cipro and Predison for 10 & 5 days, 7/3/07
Colonoscopy & Endoscopy 7/27, Left sided colitis and near cecum (mild)
Had a shot of steriods for my ear inflammation 8/31
Stopped Colozal 10/1/07 was on it for 7 weeks, side effects
On Standard Process supplements, trying a new protocal from a
natural path as of 9/10/07
I belive laughter is the best medicine, I need to laugh more!
