Why do you hope that?

No I don't.

I see them for a colonoscopy and such like.

Or if I have a specific problem, I will see a medical doctor about it, and get it diagnosed.

But I don't have one monitoring my every step, or approving my every decision. And I usually don't tell them what I am doing, or seek their permission to do it.

Doctor said as long as I am improving and feeling good, then keep doing what I am doing - so I am.

Last time I made the mistake of following the doctors advice, he gave me medication that directly caused a five month UC flare.

As a result, nowadays I don't take medication unless I absolutely have no choice in the matter.

I regularly see a naturopath and a herbalist though. They are both highly trained, qualified and experienced individuals who are helping me enormously.

Hopefully I can continue to post here. I don't want medical support. But nice to have emotional support.

Thanks
