Sidney: I just realized I didn't quite answer your question. We have been dealing with this 4-5 years, but it took about one/two years to really work things out. Now as things come up we take a visit to her doctor and he may change up something. So we are in the management stage. After your comment about a success story, I looked up IBD prognosis. It sounds like something that cannot be cured, but that can be managed for a long time. I am always happy to share the things I did to manage this, if other IBD parents want to know. Hang in there, it is worth it!
