Hi everyone!
I thought I would come and let you konw what has been going on - been away for the last week in hospital after a very rough few weeks!
I had been feeling ill for ages and you all gave me some great advice.  I was going to the doctors last Tuesday for some blood tests, but I had been up in the night with really bad pains and running to the toilet, and the last straw was when i started throwing up.
I went to the doctor and he sent me straight to hospital, where I have been for the last week.  I had the dreaded colonoscopy, which wasnt too bad until the took biopsy's and that was the most painful thing I think I have ever done!  After a few tests and thing, to cut a long story short, they have come to the conclusion I have ulcerative colitis.  I'm so glad they finally konw what they are dealing with, even though the NHS have treated me and lots of other patients in there, like a joke.  I wont go into detail but trust me, it was pretty bad - and they seem to have no idea what they are doing!
I am on so many tablets at the moment, but the best thing is I am now going to the toilet 2-3 times a day and it is a lot more solid than it was.  I get excited at the thought of doing a really good poo now!!! LOL!!!
Its my first day back today so we will have to see what happens tonight but Im feeling positive and 10 times better!!!

Hi Evie,
I'm so sorry to hear about your diagnosis but I'm happy that you were finally able to find relief with the medications. Have you been to the Ulcerative Colitis subforum here at Healing Well yet? They have great members and moderators that I'm sure will be able to give you a lot of support to the disease that is so brand new to you. I'm sure you have a lot of questions. I guess you won't be here in the IBS forum much but I hope you pop in and say hi every once in a while.
Take care of yourself!
Hugs, Des
