I talked to a friend last night and her husband has been sick (in and out of the hospital) for 6 months now. He cannot eat anything without throwing up. He literally can drink water and then throw is back up within a minute or two. He has lost over 100 pounds (thank goodness he was a very large man to start with...). At first they thought cancer but he has been through tons of testing.
Last night she told me that he was diagnosed with colitis. I asked if it was UC and she said she thought that was what they said. She said he was put on some medicine (I don't know what) for UC and has a follow up appointment with another GI doctor (he has been to a number of doctors in the last 6 months). His main symptom is throwing up EVERYTHING. As far as I know he does not have rectal bleeding or a bad problem with diarrhea. I have never heard of UC causing you to throw up everything you eat while having very little to no colon cramps, diarrhea or bleeding. This is so strange to me but I did not question her too much. She has been through so much and is a little defensive about getting advice at this point. Has anyone heard of something like this???
