Thank you so much for your replies, I edited my post cause I was worried about sounding like a crazy catlady lol !
I was crying like a madwoman but now your posts are making me feel much better. Its so good to know I am not alone.
about my symptoms, it's funny cause I think I have been carrying this for a long while before my huge flareup. In december I started feeling tired from morning to night , I was having nightsweats (began about 3 months ago and still have em) and I felt totally bloated when I had my coffee in the morning.
Then I started passing big quatities of mucus, often even without stool. I was feeling like I had a sinusitis but from my butt! (This was 2 months ago)
I went to see a doctor, he examined me and told me it was just irritable bowel syndrome and that I should carry on with my life. I continued passing huge amounts of mucus with blood in it. I didn't have diarrhea though.
I went to see another doctor a month ago cause it wasn't stopping by itself like the first doc told me. The second doc had me take blood tests and my results were crazy! He scheduled me for a colonoscopy for next june. He told me that he couldn't do anything else before my scope... I was trying to do my things, continue school ( I was on my last "apprenticeship" and then I was graduating) but I couldn't take the bus and the metro to get there cause I was starting to have really painful spasms and cramps and violent diarrhea. I endured this for a while (I am studying to be an embalmer and I had to take all me protective gear and run to the bathroom in the middle of an embalming, it was hell).
3 weeks ago I started to have mad diarrhea, cramps, passing mucus, blood and even some intestinal tissue.. I went to the emergency 3 days ago and got hospitalised.
Thank god they gave me a colonoscopy today, I have now lost about 15 pounds (so now that makes me 5'4'' , 115 lbs!
THis is my story. I hope the worst is now behind me....
