I didn't watch the Sopranos when it was telecast, because I didn't have HBO. I am now getting all the episodes from Netflix.
There is a main character in it(Adriana) that was just diagnosed with UC after she had a colonoscopy.
The doc told her it may be due to stress.
I have never heard this before. I know it's just a tv program, but the directors usually try to stick pretty close to fact in things like this.
I also think the one scene where she is frantic to find a bathroom, and the person driving her says, well I'll just drop you off at your car, and you can find a bathroom.( so typical of people who don't get it)
Adriana screams(crying) ...NO I NEED TO FIND ONE RIGHT NOW, RIGHT THIS SECOND I need to go number 2!!, and she jumps out of the car when it comes to a stop and runs into a service station bathroom.
It made me wonder if the director, or producer had experience with this disease.
Has anyone seen this episode, and have you ever heard of UC being related to stress?
