Thank you for the replies it always helps getting on here.
Quincy, i would say I'm not doing ok currently as i am in a flare and it is like one i have not experienced before. I have a new GI and when he first saw me he re - diagnosed me with UC + proctitis so i am being treated top and bottom. Even though I'm flaring since seeing him and being on this regime i have experienced the longest period in remission (4 mnths) sad i know. My doctor explained Neutr
openia and she was really informative, she actually sis extra studies in blood disorders. Im just awaiting what next
? Im worried for the meds i will be on and the side effects, he mentioned Aziathiaprine and i looked at all the side effects and had to take deep breathes. I have just grown back my hair since i had half a head gone from prednisone.
This flare is being very stubborn and i have lost my job over my UC so now I'm jobless living alone with my parents paying my rent and bills :-( It started with debilitating back pain and left sided pain radiating to my whole abdomen, at the time this was all happening i was confused if it was the start of a flare because i had NO loose BMS or mucous / blood? however i was constipated ALOT. The hospital advised me it was constipation and my go had me start psillium husks and movicol daily. I got my system moving and then the week i stopped my maintenance meds (this past week) i started with my usual blood and mucous :-( Im now on colifoam twice daily (started 2 days ago) it has stopped blood but not much else, I'm still taking my suppository. My bladder always seems to flare up when on steroids or colifoam and i need to wee more than usual so i hate steroids.
Im a bit of a mess and to top it all off i have just met someone and I'm just wanting to be normal but have all this to deal with.
Sorry for the novel people, it looks like i needed a vent
