Just wondering if there is a point where someone HAS to get surgery?
Or is it a choice we make when fed up with years of this illness?
Has anybody here been forced by circumstances?
PS I would consider dealing with an unrelenting flare as being forced by circumstances. Severe UC symptoms are completely debilitating.
If your body can't absorb food because of the flare then you are not only starving but losing resistance to infections. That puts you in a dangerous position.
That's not even taking into account being in too much pain to move, not being able to sleep, anaemia from blood loss and being house bound due to rectal incontinence.
