Ok, so first of all I love my mom more then anything... she is my best friend and although she has been thru all my GI issues with me I still feel like she thinks alot of the pain and nausea is in my head. Well she got so sick yesterday, throwing up, diarrhea and stomach pains ( I hope and pray its just a bug- which she feels better today so thats good) and she said, I can't imagine dealing with this everyday. So ha- it just made me feel better for her spend a day in my shoes... maybe now she won't think its all in my head!!!
Thanks for letting me vent:)
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
