if anyone out here can help us i'd appreciate it- my daughter has been struggling-suffering with inflammation of her cervix and bacterial infections right from the beginning of her diagnosis-she has been to the gyno more than most of us (my age) have been, and he treats the symptoms but they don't go away for very long-i am making another appointment for someone else- , she is trying to lead a young life and is more upset about this right now than the uc, and the tears and humiliation are heart breaking.
does anyone have this problem - and have you found a solution?
i'm wondering if this is common-right now her uc is under control and her colon looked healthy in june, the gastro told her this is common with an inlammatory disease like uc, but if her colon is under control why shouldn't her other parts respond as well?
and if anyone knows of a gynocologist in the long island or manhattan area that is very familiar with uc please let me know. my heart is breaking for her.
thanks, feeling desperate
also she has been on losetrin for a few years due to anemia and painful periods as a young teen, she is afraid to go off the pill because her periods used to cause cramps and diarreah-long before she was diagnosed
