    Re: how long does an ulcerative colitis flare-up last?

    Mine lasted for 2 months before I was medicated; then it took about 2 months for my bowels return to normal. The symptoms disappeared while on the medication, but if I stopped the medication they would slowly return. Now, a little over 2 months after my diagnosis, I'm only on Lialda and I've been symptom free for about 3 weeks without using any of the other medication. The doctor says I'm in remission.

    Initially it was 2 months of hell - urgency, mucus, blood, bloating, etc. Not fun at all. At this point I don't even know I have a problem. My dad has ulcerative colitis, too, and he's 64 years old. He has had 2 flare-ups in his entire life, and he takes no medication for it. I'm hoping I'm equally as lucky.
