Hi, all. I come to this website several times a week and have read much with great interest.
It's a great site, very informative & supportive.
My 22 year-old-son has been given Celebrex to try for his arthritis pain (last resort?).
He also has ulcerative colitis so he's got to be extremely careful with what he takes. The colitis,
thankfully, has quieted down over the past few months. His arthritis was originally diagnosed as
ankylo spondylitis but there's some osteoarthritis there as well. His G.I. doc feels Celebrex
would pose the least problems for him. I've read some of the comments on Celebrex and Vioxx
and must say it does concern me. Anyone out there with thoughts or experiences with Celebrex
and ulcerative colitis. Unfortunately I cannot get my son to join or chat with a support group (yet)
but this website helps me alot.
Thanks for your time.
