skikraz - I go straight to the bathroom.
I have to allot a ton of time everyday! I wake up 3 hours before I need to leave for somewhere. I'm not flaring right now, but seriously, if I don't get it all out before I go somewhere, it's absolute hell. I just get the worst sour/upset/annoyed feeling in my stomach and my body can't handle it.
I was like this (mostly) before I was even diagnosed or showed symptoms of UC. I don't know. My dad is the same way - he has to run to the bathroom sometimes - but he's fine.
22 years old
Diagnosed with moderate/severe UC June 2007, I've had it since December 2006.
Taking Lialda 3x a day<---NOT ANYMORE. I got pancreatitis from them (?).
I stopped taking Lialda 8-19-08. Ugh!
All I take now is just my 3 Entocort, and 1 iron pill in the afternoon.
NOW back on Lialda as of 8-30-08, not the cause of pancreatitis.
Going in for an endoscopic ultrasound on 9-19-08 to check things out.
Still on Entocort and iron. Yay...
Haven't been on here in a while (finally graduated college).
Update as of 5/26/09 - Now taking Imuran 100mg/day.
Taking Caltrate, iron, A, D, and B12. I still take 2 Lialda a day.
At least I'm off the Entocort.
