Hi All,
I was wondering if anyone here has ended up having BC and UC at the same time.  If so, can you share your experience with me.  I am facing this challenge now... have met with one surgeon and going to NY hospital on Friday.  How was the surgery?  How did your colitis react if you had chemo or radiation?  I have (as they know right now before body scan) BC Stage II in my breast and spread to my lymph.  They believe only one lymph is involved.
Thank you

     Oh you poor dear.  You sure have a double whammy there.  I am not so sure about taking the 6MP if you have to go on chemo.  I just returned from the library and was reading some material about that.  Your doctors should be well informed in that area.  I will keep you in  my prayers.  God bless.

Oh Chris...I'm sad to hear of your diagnosis.

I cannot help with any suggestions..you might also want to enquire at the Crohn's forum.

I wish you well during your surgery and healing journey.
