Ulcerative Colitis Tips

One of the 15,000 ulcerative colitis folks using the site adds:
"Like many UCers I have spent many hours trawling the internet googling the condition and came across your website a few years ago. I read your ebook and really liked your honesty and humour. As everyone says your positivity is so encouraging and now this is my go to website when I'm thinking about UC. Thankfully my symptoms are pretty much under control at the moment but just wanted to say thanks." Kate

Colon Free 10 Years

Free at Last, Free At Last, Free at Last, thanks to the surgery, we are free at last:

I guess I don’t have it anymore since I don’t have a colon any more thanks to ulcerative colitis. Just found out my brother (1 yr older than me) now has UC. He says his was brought on by a medication. (Of which i can’t remember the name.) I’m forwarding him a link to this site cause he really needs a place to talk w/ others about it.

I recognize remicade from my brother’s treatment. He says it didn’t help. Back in my day, it was sulfasalazine. I also had prednisone right before the end.

UC 10 yrs off and on flare ups. Then one day, it flared and ate my colon. 2 surgeries, 13 pts of blood later, no colon. Had a bag for 3 mos. Reconnected. Now, 10 yrs later, I eat and drink anything i want. Sleep thru the nite w/o having to use the can most nights. Am on no medications. Surgery and recovery were hell, but life is good now.
