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.

    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.
