    Pancolitis, Anyone?
    larsstarscanary posted:
    I've got pancolitis now. Does anyone else have it, and are you in remission? What do you do to keep the pancolitis in check?
    JavaMamma27 responded:
    just googled pancolitis. Yuck. Sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with that. It doesn't sound like much fun. I can't remember, do you have just UC or CD?

    Take good care,

    I've got Ulcerative Colitis which is now the pancolitis. But I'm still in remission--No bleeding, no diarrhea, no weight loss (unfortunately--Just kidding--I've got 5 pounds to lose the old fashioned way...)
    larsstarscanary replied to magsjeanea's response:
    Thank you so much--I really can't complain. I don't have any active symptoms. I think, and this is just a theory, that it got to this stage because of the lack of rest for 3.5 to 4 years, the amount of time I did have diarrhea. I've been symptom-free now since Thanksgiving Day 2009, knock on wood!
