Thank you all for your replies. The surgery report has came back from the colonoscopy & the dr just wrote 'localized colitis in ascending colon - pt to f/u with primary dr'. DUH!!! I think these people are a little delayed.
Maybe I'm not the wheel that is 'squeaking' very loud???? What the heck is 'localized colitis' - are they saying that yes I have UC...its not Crohn's is it? The surg report result stated severe chronic active colitis. It just seems like nobody is really telling me whats going on. I just wrote my dr that I'd like to go straight to GI. Since 1999 I haven't had a flex sig or anything. I was just too afraid to confront this issue. I was good about
controlling the symptoms - but I didn't have as much blood as I'm having now. EVERY SINGLE BM. I'm going (or attempting to) about
8 times a day. Anything that goes in my mouth - i get pain/rumbles/urgency & head for the bathroom. I'm tired.....just POOPED out! Literally!!!
Not sure if I need a referral but I'm finding out today. I'm really not wanting to go back on Rowasa suppositories - I remember them from before & they were so gross. Foul-smell, discharge...yuck!! Is this my only hope?
