Wow, Paul, I'm sorry to hear you're having such a tough week! The last ear infection I had was about
15 years ago, before I was diagnosed with UC but when I still smoked. I went through five different antibiotics before Cipro finally got rid of it for me.
I'm glad you got pictures! My doctor always gives me a copy of the report which has the pictures printed on it for my files. I can study the progression of my disease. The first one is cherry red, with all kinds of ulcerations. The second has so much mucous I can only see small patches of the intestinal wall. Finally, my most recent one looks like normal shiny pink tissue. Yours looks about
like my second one.
Hope you soon feel better, and that the new med helps you.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC diagnosed 2001.
Current meds are Colazal, Azathioprine and Remicade. Completely off steroids for more than a year now! In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
Now tapering Azathioprine, please pray for me.
