Ulcerative Collitis
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Collitis last year and have been on Asacol and Trepeline. Had a scope towards the end of last year and was told that it was in remission, I am now back to double dose of Asacol etc as it seems to be back. If you suffer from U.C. are you more prone to stomach bugs? Is it normal to have quite a bit of constant swelling and pain around the navel.

Dear UC Sufferer

Thank you for visiting

I confirm that you will be more prone to stomach bugs and that it is normal to have constant swelling and pain around the navel. You are on the correct treatment and it sounds like if you are in good hands.

Kind regards
