I'm glad to see you asked your questions here on HW Teresa :) Sorry I didn't have much time to chat with you the other night. It was bed time and my hubby was pestering me to go to bed. Couple of questions for you. When you go to the bathroom, is it almost always loose? Do you ever see any blood? If so, what color is the blood? Do you see mucous - either white slimy stuff or clear? Did you have any and/or all of these symptoms at one time or another?
A doctor typically will not go from saying your colitis to having Uc without confirmation of a scope/biopsies and/or blood tests. That's like saying that someone has a cold and turn around and tell them they have emphysema with no testing. I think you should find another doctor or at least call this doc up and ask for clarification? Ask how he can tell it has changed, what did the biopsies reveal, did the scope show ulceration, if so, how far was the ulceration.
I recommend you read up on the articles and information in the resource section of this forum. Admin, myself and other mods have added some great and informative pieces to read.
