I was diagnosed with a mild form of Ulcerative Colitis my senior year in college.I noticed alot of blood in my stool and went to the doctor right away. If Lialda is working and you have no blood in my stool should I stop taking the pill every day? I have been on the medicane since Feburary 2010.No one seems to know the long term affects. Is it possible that it can go in remission for good or that I might not possibly have this disease? Can this disease be stress related because no one in my family history has the disease? Any information would sure help. Thank You
About half of patients with ulcerative colitis have mild symptoms.
The goals of treatment are to:
Control the acute attacks
Prevent repeated attacks
Help the colon heal
Patients with more severe ulcerative colitis tend to respond less well to medications.
Permanent and complete control of symptoms with medications is unusual. Cure is only possible through complete removal of the large intestine.
