Hello fellow patients!
I'm 28 and I was diagnosed with UC recently and I got one thing to say: IT SUCKS
Any advice and mostly,some love would be great!
Here's my story,(generally I was a really healthy person)
In Feb 2015 my first real flare started,8-15 daily visits to the WC,blood,diarrhea,gases,the whole package!
I continued to ignore the problem for 5 months(young and stupid,you know how it goes),until I finally went to the doctor on mid july,I got examined,biopsy results got back and here I am now with UC (40cm),trying to figure out how to handle it.
The doctor gave me mezavant 1.2(2 pills morning-2 pills night) for 20 days and 1 salofalk enema 4g before sleep for 14 days.,everything was going GREAT after so many months of suffering,Solid stuff was coming out,1-2 visits to the WC maximum,no blood.I really thought I was done with this nasty thing!Not a chance..
After 14 days on the meds suddenly all hell broke loose!
The symptoms came back,diarrhea,some blood,and this time also lower back pain.
I went back to the doctor and got new meds.
Now I'm on 2 Salofalk granu-stix 1000mg in the morning and 2 in the night,1 salofalk enema before sleep,plus some antibiotics.I'm still on a flare with blood and diarrhea and a mental wreck!
That's it for now
Thanks for "listening",it means the world to me!
