i found out i had uc 2years ago and i still aint got a clue whats going on really. i have only seen my concultant once, is that normal? and my doc hasnt a clue what uc is, whenever i try to discuss it with him he just tells me to ring my concultant..... nobody seems to know anything. Have i just been unlucky or is it this country, america seems to have it all sorted by reading some peoples posts. xx

Hi. I'm from Ireland. I've been on here abour 6 months. From what I can tell the American patients are better informed about the disease from their doctors and GIs and their medication is "slightly" more down the line." than us on the east side of the pond. But all in all I don't think there is too much difference. The more you read the more knowledge you'll get. Don't try and understand UC. The doctors don't understand it. Instead familiarise yourself with the process that UC is.

Hi, I'm in England. I was diagnosed about three years ago but did get the runaround from my GP practice...being told I had haemorrhoids and then that I was stressed.

I'm not too lucky with my consultant as he doesn't seem to have the time to talk about things, and we don't have a specialist nurse at my hospital. I have got more information from the internet, but mainly from this forum . Another site in the Uk which is good id  www.theibdclub.org.uk  .....they sent me a free information pack which was good. I also joined the NACC , another support organisation in the UK.

Memmie,

There is much better GI's and much better medication out there than you have been exposed too. You are being short-changed. It might be time to seek some other doctor / hospital. None of the regular members of this forum would stand for this kinda healthcare. Hopefully hey will chime in with their own suggestions.

Hi,

You may want to get yourself in for a 2nd opinion at St Marks part of Northwick Park hospital www.stmarkshospital.org.uk/ in London as they are the specialists in UC. I am a patient a tthe Royal Free in london but feel I am not receiving the best service I could so I have asked my GP to send a letter to St marks for a 2nd opinion. You should also have a look at http://www.nacc.org.uk/content/home.asp

the only advise I can give is stay on top of your illness and if you are not receiving the best care then maybe move hosptials. Good luck!

Hi im from England ( northampton)
 
I was diagnosed comingup 5 years ago with Proctitis, few flares but on the whole manageable until Jan 07 , problems started , went to my doctor who i had had a lot of faith in, told him it was getting  ALOT worse and could it have progressed to Colitis to which he retorted " oh if you had Colitis believe me you would know about it " me thinking well he is the Doctor , must know what he is on about ill just do as he tells me - BIG mistake , 4 months of the worse D , blood loss, anemia, calcium defiency, going loo 25 plus times aday ( he never asked me once how many times i was going a day ) , no sleep , pain .. i could go on , i finally get another colonoscopy done and its Pancolitis !!!! In hospital for a week and a few days away from that Toxic mega colon malarkey !
 
So the moral of this story is DO NOT be fobbed off, keep going back, keep telling your doc how you feel , good luck and hope you get sorted .
 
oh and he was so sheepish when i had to go and see  him  when i was better , Good,  so he should have been !

I'm not in England, I'm in SCOTLAND! yeah
My consultant is excellent, I've been seeing him about every 2 weeks for the last few months. He always has time to talk, there is also 2 IBD nurses who are very helpful as well. I'm at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh. My consultant is Mr. Shand (and excellent he is too!), here are some of the pieces he's written:

http://www.expertmapper.com/cgi_bin/ef.cgi?pg=sb&X=x%7Cibd&B=Shand%20A

I feel I'm being really well looked after to be honest. I think it's not so much to do with what country your in (though Scotland is patently the best country in the world anyway :-) ) it seems to be more pot luck with the individual consultant.
However, there are also some massive regional variations with regard to the IBD nurses and associated services.


As my mate told me, "The quite bairns never get any sweeties".
If you're not happy (and i wouldn't be if I was in your shoes) you need to shout about it.

chiming in (in the US). Definitely find another Dr., not sure how your healthcare system works but I would definintely research and see what you can do to get to a Dr. that is knowledgeable, accessible, listens and responds well to you. You have to be your own advocate and know how to work the system you are in.

I'm staying w/my GI currently only b/c I am confident in my treatments b/c of this board, my own research, and he is working well w/my Kidney Doc, but I know where I will go for my next Dr. when the time comes.

Don't feel bad though, at first I did not know much either, but you will learn.

all my best.

I used to do medical malpractice work - so believe me there are duds in the US as well. Remember, doctors are just like the rest of us - some are very good, some not so good, some not so smart, some very bright. Find a good gastroenterologist. At least, you don't have to worry about paying for drugs and for medical care.

It is interesting, though. I go to London frequently and discovered that you cannot buy Lactaid pills there (and I haven't found them any place else in Europe). There must be lactose intolerant Brits! I did notice that pharmacies had a lot more headache pills than in the US.

memmie,

I spend about half the year in England and the rest of the time in the USA.  The USA doesn't have it sorted but I think there is more flexibility in finding and choosing the right doctor - it really is a matter of finding a practice where they know what they're doing and have the time to answer your questions and take your calls.

In England, the doctors I have seen seem very knowledgeable but there seems to be a lot more paperwork and bureaucracy there, so they tend to get caught up in the system.

Also, I've found that if you ask questions and show that you've educated yourself on UC, you'll get better feedback from the specialists.  It makes them aware that you need to understand the treatment and will question the treatment. 

The first doctor who saw me at a specialist GI clinic in England last year turned out to be a research fellow doing the rounds of the various units in the hospital.  I made sure I asked a lot of questions - she ended up having to take out a book to research some of the answers to what I was asking, and even popped out to speak to a senior adviser to make sure they were doing things the right way - the next time I went back they had assigned me to be looked at by the head of the clinic!.

Alternative therapies for several months (SCD, ayurvedic treatment, VSL#3): didn't work and became anaemic. Canasa, 2 daily: remission for a month then flared-up.

Memmie,

I'm suprised that the docotr told you to take the Pentasa when needed as you need to keep taking them, not take them as and when.

also, one other thing, before I was dx'd, I had to see my primary care dr. to get referred to a specialist (had an HMO at the time, then went to PPO, now back on HMO, PPO is just too expensive). My primary care did not believe that I had UC (even though My Mom had it and I told her that) thought my problems were a result of eating Wow chips (around that time they just came out and the olestra in them was causing people some bowel problems). I was so ticked off. Then I got worse and called to get in to see a GI and they told me I had to wait 3 months and I told them well I have toilet bowls full of blood, I don't think I will make it. They got me in the next day.

for any who don't know
HMO - you need to see your primary before you can see a specialist
PPO - you can see who ever you want when you want

I'm on an HMO now b/c the PPO option for my company costs a lot more than the HMO option, also now I know how to work the system and can change back to PPO if I feel the need.

Memmie,it's not this country,it's your GP.IBD is becoming more common and if he doesn't comprehend what UC is,then he's not fit for the job.Take Pentasa when you need it?That's every day,feeling well or not.And that's just for starters,you may need an immuno-suppressive to maintain remission,or even something like Remicade.

Point being,you don't know any of this,because you're not being treated properly.I wouldn't say it's the GI's fault,as your GP is the first line of defence.He's the one to chase referral's and such for you.

My best advice is,please,please,please,switch to a different GP.I really don't believe you could possibly find a worse one in the case of IBD.

Switch GP's,then insist you go back to see a GI again.I'm sure that you'll be much happier with your treatment and the state of your Colon that it brings about.

All the best and please let us know how you get on.

And don't forget that apart from changing your GP, if you are not happy with your GI you have the right to change to a different one.You have this for life, so don't put up with being treated this way.

Here's what I would do:
telephone your consultant's hospital. Ask to speak to their secretary. Impress upon them exactly what is going on. You're not wasting their time and I can assure you it's quite routine (I've spoken to my consultant's secretary and even been advised to phone anytime I'm worried about something).
Regarding the Pentasa, my consultant told me it takes at least 4 weeks to build up to a therapeutic dose and you have to keep taking it every day to maintain this.
Most UC sufferers will take Pentasa (or mesalasine) in some form every day, for the rest of their lives. Never 'when needed'!
Let us know when you've done this, will you?

If it helps, I hate making a fuss, but I look at my family and think "If I get very ill or die (not trying to be dramatic) because of something I could have changed, how would it affect them?".
That tends to galvanise me into action...

Does anyone out there by any chance live in the Croydon area ? When I was diagnosed 3 years ago I felt very much alone, and very frightened, until I found this forum. My specialist does not have good "people" skills at all. When I was first diagnosed he walked into my room after my colonoscopy and said " the good news is you don't have cancer.You have ulcerative colitis so take these tablets and see me in a few weeks." No explanation, no reassurance, even though he knew how scared I was.We have no specialist nurse in our area.

I am a nurse with years of experience, but being on the "other side of the bed" is still very scary.I am becoming so disappointed with the NHS, from both sides of the fence. I have yet to meet someone else with UC in person, although the support from this forum is amazing. I have thought of changing my doctor but then I start to think " better the devil you know"..............

Being a nurse I really want to be able to help myself and not keep running back to the doctor. I am also very worried about being put on steroids, after all the stories I have heard. It almost seems that the symptoms can be preferable to the side effects of the drugs.

I live in Morden, so not far from Croydon. I am currently waiting to be diagnosed. Had one sigmoid in december w/ biopsy taken, all that came back from that was that my colon was inflamed but no further info. Finally saw a GI two weeks ago, who just took my history and said I will have to have another sigmoid within 2-3 weeks which will go further up and will take more biopsies. Also had some blood tests done. So, just about to go into week 3 and haven't heard a thing about the appointment. So I think I'll be on the phone on monday!! Being treated at St Heliers.

Btw, my symptoms are bleeding and mucous which i've had for a long time; interestingly I stopped having alcohol about 4 weeks ago (i drank just a glass of wine every evening with my dinner!), switched to really plain food, pretty much cut out sugar (from chocolate rather than fruit)...and the bleeding has slowed right down. I even had a couple of days last week with no bleeding or mucous, which is frankly a miracle. It's come back a bit..but seems alot better now than it was last year...also have had 5 acupuncture sessions and this is ongoing.... anyway.. .I know I'm not "officially" yet suffering with UC, but having scoured long and hard for causes of my symptoms, UC seems to be the only one that fits..sorry, I've waffled alot now..

Hello there Love in a mist ! I know Morden well as I used to live there as a child. I am a nurse and trained at St.Helier Hospital.Just out of interest are you male or female, and how old are you ?

Strange you should say that about alcohol, I have been in a kind of flare recently, but with no bleeding.I don,t really drink at all these days. Yesterday we went to a wedding and I had a few too many glasses of champagne and some wine.I couldn't resist as the champagne was flowing all day !! Low and behold I had some bleeding during the night.

I am under a consultant at Mayday as we live in Coulsdon. I'd be interested to know who your consultant is and if he turns out to be good, as I am in 2 minds to change from the one I see.

I would be interested to hear how you get on.....especially as you are "local " !!! I presume you are having no treatment at the moment ? Do give them a ring on Monday and chase up your appointment.

Hi Lynn,

It's a small world! I'm female, 36yrs old. I've been living here for a couple of years now, after being priced out of Tooting!! I've driven through Coulsdon on the way to Gatwick a few times :)

I'm not receiving any treatment at the moment. The consultants name is Mr Mahmood, I'll keep you posted on how it goes. At the moment, I'm just trying everything holistically to see if it has any effect at all. When I had the sigmoid in December (that was done at the Morden Hall Dr's), the consultant there said to just cut out spicy foods. My acupuncturist (In Carshalton) has told me (from a traditional chinese medicine) point of view, to only eat cooling foods since the colon is inflamed. He suggested switching from red wine (which was what I used to drink) to white wine> I did that for a little while, then just stopped completely. However I did have a glass of red wine after about 3 weeks abstinence and my stomach instantly turned into a football and I felt very grotty. So it is very interesting. I really just want to get diagnosed at treated quickly as I've lived with this problem for a few years now, misdiagnosed a couple of times as piles, then went back last April to the doctor insisting i wanted it looked at further. It's taken this long to get seen. Very frustrating. I also want to start a family (and have just had a mc in the last few weeks). Sorry, maybe all a bit TMI...feeling just very frustrated by it all at the mo!!

Hi,
It's funny you said that your acupuncturist suggested switching to white wine..........I find white wine gives me more problems !
I'm very much into the holistic side of things...........I am a qualified aromatherapist and reflexologist. Have tried homeopathy and all sorts of vitamins and supplements.
I would be interested to hear how you get on, if you want to e-mail me, my e-mail address is on my profile.
By the way my consultant at Mayday told me food makes no difference but I don't believe that.....I know when my tummy is playing up I would avoid spicy foods etc.
I was also told I had piles but knew it was more than that.I'm suprised your consultant hasn't booked you in for a colonoscopy.........

Certainly is a small world, I live in Morden and was born in St Helier (but I only venture into Croydon to go to ikea!)

I get treated at St Georges and my gastroenrologist is excellent and so is the rest of the team there.

Love in a mist,
Your treatment so far doesn't sound to good.
I've only been diagnosed for about a year. When I saw the consultant the first thing he did was book me in for a colonoscopy. Biopsies were taken and UC was confirmed right away (this was after my useless GP took 2 months of me going in every week before they would refer me).

But anyway, since being referred things have been far from straight forward, at one stage I was prepped for surgery and was about 48 hours away from losing my colon. But at least the consultant has always been there every step, explaining things to me. I can call up his secretary whenever I need to book an appointment or even if I just need him to call me if I'm concerned about something.
What made me go from being a complete wreck to coming to terms with this was definitely the consultant and his team.

I thought my 2 month wait was bad, if this has been going on for years for you with no proper diagnosis you should start complaining or ask your GP to refer you to someone else (St. Georges, St. Marks or anywhere that will get it confirmed and treated!)

& memmie25, it does sound like you have been unlucky with your doctors and consultant, might also be worth changing until you find one you're happy with.

Well its good to know I'm not the only person in this area with these problems.....I was beginning to think I was !
I have to say I was really lucky when my GP referred me to the GI team as my husbands company gives him and me some private cover, so i was able to see the consultant within days at Shirley Oaks Hospital. I had my colonoscopy there the following week. However I don't see him privately now and see him under the NHS. Its amazing how different he is towrds me , depending on where I see him !
Although I live in Coulsdon, I hate Croydon and also only go there for Ikea !!!! I much prefer Sutton.

I only go to Croydon for Ikea too, lol...and then only on week nights!

Clackeroony thanks for the advice. I've still not heard anything so am going to phone St heliers tomorrow and see if i can speak to the consultants secretary. Though I only have a main number for St Heliers..I'm sure I'll get there in the end. I used to live literally very near to the side entrance of St Georges...I know it quite well in there.. I was given the choice of that hospital but opted for St Heliers as it is so close to where I live.
