In june i had a major flare of uc which resulted in me having my colon removed, after a few complications post-op i started to feel somewhat normal again ( if thats possible ). I have moved to a new country and seen a gastro dr who says that the surgery i had in the uk to remove my colon was not complete eg they have left to much, i think the drs were hoping to reconnect.Now as a result i am flaring in the remaining bits that are left, approx 30cm ( they could not tell when they scoped me as it was so bad)
I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I am now back on 30mg of pred plus 100mg of imuran if that does not work then they are going to introduce remicade. I thought that having surgery would cure me and feel absolutley gutted that i now have to put up with the horrible meds as well as coping with my ileostomy !
Would it be best to ask to have it all removed?
Any advice would be extremley grateful xxxx
