MY DIAGNOSES. Well its not the best news but i have Ulcerative Colitis. At the age of 26??? Anyway i have to go back in a week for them to check what they cut out to see if its not cancerous (but unlickely). The coloscopy wasnt painful at all, probably cos i asked them to give me a sedative and i didnt even remember the procedure. it took 45 mins but it felt like 5 mins and i was watching the screen while asking stupid questions cos i was so drugged. I felt like i had drunk a bottle of straight burbon.
Anyway, can anyone share with me if they have the same sickness??

Oooh, Prevail, sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis.  UC can't possibly be much fun.  There is an entire forum on HW devoted to this condition, so they will definitely be able to help you out.  Actually, your age is just around the time many people are diagnosed - mid-20's - so that's not unusual.  There are many medications and other remedies available to control UC, so that should be heartening, but the disease can definitely occasionally wreak havoc!  You'll need to get those scopes more frequently now, but sounds like you got through it all right.  Keep us updated and best of luck to you.

So sorry to hear about your diagnosis.  I know IBS isn't as serious as IBD, but think on the bright side, at least with UC you'll have meds to help manage it.  Seems like IBS is a crap-shoot.
Like Sarita mentioned, there's a whole other forum for Ulcerative Colitis.  The regulars are just as nice as we are.  cool   You will get lots of support and great information there.
Good luck!!!
