    UC and CMV

    Hello UC ites. Is there anyone out there that have been diagnosted with the CMV virus? My doc seems to think my flares are partly caused by this virus. Ive been treated for this once and it was hell. I felt like a human pin cushion with all of the lab work needed while I was taking the meds for it. Its been several years since this treatment and Im being checked for it again! I pray its not present again.
