A Cure for the Incurable

In my first year of college I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis. I became very ill and spent two seperate weeks in and out of a local hospital. I was taking 15 perscribed pills a day. My second visit to the hospital I was so anemic that I was told I would have to have a blood transfusion. They gave me a love blood transfusion. I went home after a week of sitting in the hospital. Hating the terrible effects of steriods and the other meds I was on, I did not follow the regiment of taking my meds, and in fact stoped taking them all togather. Within weeks I began to feel better. My colon began healing, and now I have been in remission without any meds for over two years. I have a theory...the cause of U.C. is unknown. If it begins with a virus, my body could not fight the virus causing the disease, could the live blood transfusion have had white blood cells from a person who had come acrossed and fought the virus; therefore was immune. Their white blood cells would have passed that information to mine, causing my body to become immune also. If this is true, a person with the same blood type as mine, with ulcerative colitis, could be given a transfusion of my blood and therfore be immune. I know it is a long shot...but what if it could heal others?

hello there.i know this discussion was started 5 years ago but i would love to comment here because the topic seems to be interesting.i am a nurse and i know what you are saying.indeed, it is a long shot thinking that you might give a light to a cure for this disease.however, it still remains to be proven clinically. i clinical study must be conducted to find out the possibility of the immunity you are referring.
