Thinking back to when I was diagnosed. I had surgery for hernia. I got a mesh patch put in, soon after I think I started having colon problems, wonder if there could be a link to infected mesh or something, I should google it, what you guys think ?

I will not be passive.  I will fight until I win.

I don't think the majority of us have implanted devices but I wouldn't say it's definitely not at fault for your UC. I would google it but it seems pretty random, there probably won't be too much information out there. I hope you find some answers. turn

Were you on antibiotics before/during/after your surgery?
