I wonder what you would be like on prednisone. Or immunosuppressive drugs. Or facing the prospect of surgery. Or having surgery. Or having an ileosotomy. Or many of the side effects from the dozen or so meds that you'd be on at some point. You think you have bad anxiety right now. You haven't seen anything.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (proctitis) July 26 2011. After a few minor flares my GI disappeared and I got worse and my last 3 flares were Pancolitis.
After spending 2 weeks in the hospital I decided to have surgery. First of 2 Jpouch surgeries was September 2nd 2016. Takedown was February 1st 2017.
It's not easy but what is? Well, other than having a healthy colon.

We don't need to continue down this road, as it does no one any good. I will lock this thread now.

Please see my last response on the 1st page.
