I no exactly how you feeling. I had UC for 3years and my specialist said it was one of the worst cases he had seen. I went to the loo up to 50 times a day. I had tried everything they gave me but nothing worked, in the end surgery was the only way I would have some quality of life.
I had my large bowel removed and a colostomy bag fitted in April last year. That on its own made a huge change in my life. Then 3 weeks ago on 9th Feb I had the bag removed and was put back together again. I now go to the toilet like anybody else, they told me it takes about 3 months for the body to adjust to going normally again, but already I only go about 3 times a day.You do get a warning something is going to happen but you dont have to rush to the loo.
Ive been home 10 days now and dont regret a single thing. I feel great.
