Iím an Ulcerative Colitis Late Bloomer! I wasnít diagnosed until age 50! Not for lack of symptoms, I was misdiagnosed a couple times!!
I have three younger brothers who all have J Pouches!! Bad genes!!!

In a little less than 2 weeks Iím having my colectomy. I canít wait! Iíve been suffering since mid October, when I tapered off of prednisone while taking Xeljanz. All the medications and diet recommendations failed! Itís time for my colon to be gone!!!

I am so grateful for the love of my wife, and the experience of my family and the diligence of my doctors!
