I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 4 years ago. I am 56 years old.
I have been through the step ladder of drugs i.e. Asacol to Canasa to prednisone now to 6-mercaptopurine with the addition of the probiotic VSL#3. I have been in remission twice during these last 4 years but always had a recurrence (mostly in the fall and winter oddly enough). I am currently better than I was in December of 2011 when this last flare up began. I hope to live long enough to see a better treatment for this awful disease.
