Hi my name is Alan.
Just a few months ago I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. I was having really bad diarrhea for months and went to see three different doctors and none of them could figure it out. Eventually it got so bad I had to go to A&E. Finally after dozens of tests and spending 10 days in hospital they finally figured it out. I am managing nicely so far and I fell better then I have in a long time.
I just wanted to know do you have to continue taking steroids if you have ulcerative colitis?
