Update: Ulcerative Colitis and a CMV Infection

This is an pdate to my previous story: “Finally I Feel LIke I Really Have Ulcerative Colitis from Sept. 7th, 2011”

Last week I had a biopsy, which today I discovered showed signs of severe colitis, and a CMV infection(Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Congenital CMV Infection). Has anyone had any experience with CMV colitis (this is what my doctor referred to it as)? Today I was emitted to the hospital to under go treatment. However, I am still unsure exactly what type of treatment that this is going to involve. Yesterday I had my PPD skin test administered, and it is going to be read tomorrow; which will likely result in a Remicade treatment. So far all they have done today is taken blood for testing and hooked me up to an IV.

  1. I’d really like to know what happened to you!

    I just got diagnosed with UC from a CT scan a the ER and I’m 57 years old! I have EBV and CMV which = CFS.

    I’m waiting for a referral to a specialist because I have an HMO. I’m not sure I’m going to make it.

    How was your hospital stay? Did the treatment work? Can you eat now?

    Thank. I hope you’re well.
