I am so depressed & stressed out right now. After my ileostomy reversal, I was going 20 plus times a day. When I was in the hospital, the thought I had C-Diff, but that was negative...or it was because they were already treating me for it by the time they took the samples. I had a colonscopy & the gastro dr thought it was diversion colitis but now it's obvious it's UC. My colon/rectal surgeon mentioned that it could be Crohn's too....how do they figure out the difference. I'm on all the meds in my profile & am still going 10-12 times a day. Sometimes I don't even make it to the bathroom.
<-- embarrassing. I have so much gas, so much discomfort both in my stomach and my rear end because of going so often. I have to see both doctors in a couple of weeks...I'm see them every other week right now. I have so little energy...is that normal? I used to run circles around everyone. What am I doing wrong???
