Last week I posted about
my Mom being sick, and how it was kinda nice for her to get a "touch" of what I go thru all the time... well Karma sucks! lol. I ended up getting the bug Thursday and by Thursday evening I was in the ER for fluids- I was so dehyradted! So 7 iv sticks, 2 bags of fluids and some rest I am feeling much better!
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
