Hi DG....I'm OK with being perceived as being silly in the fact that I find it distasteful...it is what it is. I'm confident in my treatment, hardcore 5ASA.. which I can definitely sing a gazllion accolades about
, but not all UCers or docs have the same opinion.
I eat mushrooms. I take vitamins that are "mould" and I take antibiotics when I need them. Not all is equal nor needs to be justified to not like it.
Save your air miles points and when you have it done, please keep us informed. There will always be someone who will want to know the "ins and outs" of the procedure.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
