I have been on the UC forum for quite some time now fighting ever-worsening Ulcerative Colitis, but it seems I have lost the battle to deal with it via medication and now require surgery.
I am currently in hospital in Brisbane Australia as my body is unable to get the nutrition it needs from normal food, and they are scheduling surgery for somewhere around 3 weeks from now.
I am wondering if any of you have had, or any of you know someone who has had surgery for UC (Colectomy?) in Australia, preferably Brisbane.
I'm scared stupid and really need someone to talk to about
this - finding it really hard to come to terms with and really fear the surgery.
