I was first diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2002, after dealing with several months of digestive issues. I thought it was just an intolerance to dairy, but it turned out to be so much more. Initially,
my doctor said it was a very mild case and recommended I take prescribed oral medication three times a day. He explained that having this disease puts me in a higher risk category for colon cancer
and that it’s very important to continue taking the medication.
