Has anyone ever had tiny red bumps on eyelids above the eye and below. Could this be a reaction to meds or UC. I take 6mp and 10 mgs of steriods. I have never had this before in the last 6 years of UC. I have no colon and recently was reconnected to my rectum. The reconnection has failed and the UC is in my rectum. I have made a complete circle. When I had the bag , I felt great. Now we may try the j-pouch or go back to the bag. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Westy

I don't know if your problem is related to meds or UC.  I do know that my last 6 months of having UC it manifested in a skin condition.  I developed a lump on my finger that I had removed only to have it grow back.  My doctor swore that it was a manifestation of my toxic colon.  A few months later I had my colon removed and the lump went away within one week!  I think my doctor was right.

I had j-pouch surgery 7 years ago.  It was the best health decision I have made to date.


dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998
1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics
2000 lost all my B-12 stores and became anemic
2001 opted for j-pouch surgery- now living life med-free
