Super big thanks to one of the site’s user’s down in Australia. I just received this email, and I am really hoping he follows up with how things turn out. How about you???
Here’s the message that dropped in my inbox yesterday:
Hey Adam, I didn’t want to add as another story but i am a member and thought this might be cool to share with everyone, i will be sure to keep you updated as to how it all works out. Hi, I thought I let you all now I’m currently participating in a double blinded FMT trial here i Australia at the St Vincents Hospital. The trial goes on for 8 weeks, I’ve had my first infusion yesterday via a colonoscopy, in hospital then I give myself an enema 5 times a week I have been given frozen enemas which I defrost prior to giving myself my own fmt enemas. This is a double blinded trial i wont know if I am being treated with the placebo or the fmt infusion, but after 8 weeks I will know if I have placebo I am given opportunity to go on the fmt treatment which, means that another 8 weeks of infusion s, I will let you all know how all goes and keep you all updated.

If you’re as interested as I am in the results…or at least some follow up to this story…do me a HUGE favor and write a comment below saying:
Thanks Jay, let us know how it goes!
Fecal Microbiata Transplant therapy is gaining steam and it is super awesome to know users of iHaveUC are taking part in the scientific approach to this fully becoming a mainstream accepted treatment. Since I’ve been following FMT for about 5 years, it’s definitely made a serious leap closer to the doctor’s office than previously. Either way, please write a comment below if you’re interested in the follow up from this study. Jay, you da man!!!
Here is a link I found which I believe has the details regarding this clinical trial:
Cheers and hard poops,
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
