My name is (withheld for privacy) and you spoke with my mom around 3 months ago about using Fecal Transplants as a treatment for UC.
I was diagnosed with UC about 8 years ago (when I was a senior in high school). After my diagnosis, I went into remission for roughly 4 years with Pentasa, but then started having problems again. I have been battling constant, severe flares over the last 2.5 years and have tried many different treatments including: Prednisone (3 long rounds), Remicade (severe allergic reaction), Humira (16 months), Asacol HD (2 years), Lialda (8 months), LDN (4 months), various supplements, Canasa suppositories/enemas, etc.
After reading your book I decided to give the Fecal Transplants a go and started them on December 28, 2013 using my husband as my donor. I have been doing the treatments once a day at various times and seem to be seeing promising results. However, I have several questions about the treatment itself now that I’ve been doing the FMTs for a little over a week. I also have a few questions about the use of other supplements/medications both throughout the treatment process and after completing the FMTs. Would it be possible to send you an email with these questions or speak with you on the phone sometime soon?
Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with my mom and for writing this incredible book that looks like it just might be my saving grace! I truly look forward to hearing back from you and hope that you had a wonderful Holiday Season. Thanks again for all of your help!
