Of course it's advertising, but it at least puts the condition in front of the general population. Most of them don't have any idea that we exist, much less what we go through. I'm very
it with my friends and co-workers, so they all know when I tell them my lower back is hurting that I'm having a bad day. But not everyone can do that, and not everyone knows someone with IBD.
Moderate to severe left-sided UC (21 cm) diagnosed 2001.
Intolerant to Asacol and rectal mesalamine preparations.
On Prednisone then Entocort 2001-2006 with only short periods off.
Current meds are Colazal, Azathioprine and Remicade.
In remission since April, 2006. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
