I have not posted here in many months as I was trying to concieve and put UC out of my mind, but that has not happened on either count.
Anyway, I have a question that I'm sure consists of TMI, but here it goes...
Over the weekend I had what I was sure a SERIOUS hemmoroid. I laid down the entire weekend, I mean from Friday night until Monday morning. I had a lot of bleeding and still do today. I went to the doctor today (general practitioner) due to the persistent bleeding. He said it is not a hemmoroid, gave me some antibiotics, told me to see me GI and sent me on my way. He talked about fistals (sp?) and abcesses and ulcers tracking outside of your body. I was in such a tizzy when I left I broke down in tears in the parking lot. He said I need to see my GI immediately, which how often does that happen? He mentioned that it was possible that my UC had manifested outside of my body. Does anyone know what this means?
My doc is somewhat hard to understand and when I ask him a question it seems like he talks in circles, I often want to say, "Regular person speak please!!" Anyway, I've been reading some websites and some of them talk about UC causing red nodules on your body, I have a few of these on my thighs and they are painful. At first I thought one of them was a spider bite, but then the second one developed. (one on each leg) They match in placement also. Has anyone heard of this? Please help if you can!!!
