I spent yesterday in the ER and after the worst pain in my life (i didnt even know it was a flare the pain was so bad) they told me I was having a UC flare. They were able to tell from a abdominal CT scan...they also said I had a lot of inflammation. The treatment is Flagyl and Levaquin (at least until monday when I will speak with my GI again.
I have never had a CT scan before or been treated with antibiotics? is this a typical course of treatment for a bad flare?
Also, they gave me the option to be admitted to the gI unit to have IV antibiotics and I chose to leave...did a make the wrong decision??
