Hello, new to this site.
In April of 2007 I was diagnosed with UC. After numerous drugs and steriods I had a toxic mega colon by July. July 21st I had my colon, large intestine, and appendex removed.
In Oct of 2007 I had the take down surgery. Everything went surprisingly very well.
I am 29 years old now.
The only meds I take are a multivitamin and an acid reducer.
The only problems I have now is a little gas pain now and then, but I have had a lot of infections.
Shingles (that was a close one, but caught it in time)
Strep Throat (twice)
Sinus Infections (on my second one this week)
Let's just say it has been a bad year, but it's getting better.
I have a couple of questions: (I am not all that confident in doctors right now)
1. Sometimes I have control issues. Normally, how long does it take for you to regain most of it back?
2. With all the infections I have been getting, is there something else I should be doing. I took B12 shots and that didn't do anything.
Thank you for your help.
