Hiya, i have had Ulcerative colitis for about
15 years now (I m now 28) I have never taken any medication for my colitis as i have had a real hard time dealing with actually having it , i have been trying to ignore it, but unfortunately it's not going away.
Anyway i have a few issues i would like some advice on if there is anyone who can help me?My doctor has recently given me Asacol foam enemas
to try, does anyone else use this treatment?
Lately my colon seems to be in spasm all the time, specially after i have eaten, i also feel sick and that makes me panicky, does this sound like Colitis symptoms or IBS? These symptoms have been really bad over the last 2 weeks, i have decided to just not eat as my bowels just wont stop going into spasm.
And finally i am extremely worried that for the last 15 years i have not treated my colitis, and therefore worried sick that actually i may have Colon cancer. How can you tell the difference between colitis and cancer without having to have a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy. is it likely that i would have bowel cancer at 28?
I would be very grateful for any advice, i am so worried about
my condition. [img]/community/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
