My Ulcerative Colitis Experience So Far:
I was diagnosed in January 2011 with ulcerative colitis. Spent a week in the hospital on IV and after tests was told I had it. Because they said it was a mild case I thought if I was careful with what I ate I would be okay! Well after losing 45 pounds since then I finally got in to see a gastroenterologist specialist. He did another colonoscopy and gave me a prescription to start when I left the hospital. I am now taking something called Tecta EC 40 mg(pantoprazole magnesium) every morning and Salofalk suppositories every night. The only problem is I am afraid to eat because it seems like everything other than chicken or poached salmon goes right through me.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me on what to eat or how to go about figuring it out? Thanks, Palmtree
