Frisky, I'm so sorry no one was around to help you yesterday! How did things go?
Welcome to HealingWell, although I'm so sorry your daughter has UC. Do you know how much of her colon is involved? Does she usually have diarrhea or constipation? What symptoms has she had. We do have several parents here of children who have UC. I'm sure they'll have more to share about
coping with this.
Take some time to browse the resource links posted on this page. Educating yourself about
