George in Napa

My name is George and I live in Napa, Ca. I am 66 years old and was diagnosed with UC (proctitis) in June of 2010, one month after my 65th birthday. Colon problems run in my family. I have one brother who has Crohn's and another with IBS and yet another brother who's gut frequently feels like garbage. My mother had colon problems and I think my dad did too (he always tried to keep his health issues to himself….. like they were some sort of secret!). Also my 17 year old grandson seems to have some sort of intestinal problems that started about a year ago.
