Im new to this site and I was diagnosed with UC last night. Im worried because I dont know how to manage it. The pain I felt was horrible and I dont wanna go through that again. Plus they gave me a shot in my butt cheek. :( it hurt... lol but my questions mostly regard pains, diet, vitamins, and medication.
What foods are safe to eat?
-all websites ive checked only tell you what to avoid but what they recommend are things they say you shouldnt eat. So i need actual food items.
What foods can cause an upset stomach, bubbling, bloating etc.
Ive also been having sharp cramps on my left side, especially when I inhale. Im also having lower back pains. Is this normal?
Are there any vitamins that can help prevent a flare or pains?
Would you recommend a low fiber diet?
I am currently taking antibiotics, dicyclomine 20mg and nexium 40mg. I have shoulder pains from dis
location a while back is it okay to take hydrocodone while on these medications?
What are things I can do to promote a healthier colon?
Would becoming a vegetarian influence my colons condition?
I have bad acid reflux, are there any ways to minimize this?
