I hope the meds are helping with your UC. My daughter had UC for 11 years. She would go on a med. and it would help for a while and then not be as effective in contolling it and she would go on to the next med, and so on. The last med she was on was remacaid, one of the newer biologics they have developed for RA, crohn's, and UC. It worked for a while. Last year she was told she had little choice but to have her colon removed. We were apprehensive but it has worked out wonderfully so far. She had the surgery done at Mayo in Rochester. I hope things work out well for you.
