    MEB intiated for Ulcerative Colitis, What are my chances of staying in?

    I've been in the Air Force for almost 6 years. I've had the UC for 4 years but I have never had a MEB until now. My doctor says there's a very low chance I'll get the boot since my UC is really mild and I don't have to take strong meds. However, I really want to hear from people who have...

    Hey there! So I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Pancolitis. I am on Remicade and immunosuppressants. I have just completed my 3rd infusion but now the docs are telling me I am most likely going to be Medboarded. I am Active Duty Army with 6 year TIS. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    Remicade and Ulcerative Colitis

    Had anyone been rated analogously for the use of remicade for their UC treatment? It looks like for other conditions (e.g. Skin conditions, asthma) it would be 60%, but it's not even listed for UC. I'm nervous that they will only rate me at 10% because my disease has been under control for...
