Andrea Garcia

I was diagnosed with UC at the age of 11 this year 2014, I will be 41. At the age of 18 I had two surgeries where most of my large intestine was removed leaving a small section to act as the reservoir.

The MASTER of Holding It In

In November of 2013 I finally reached a breaking point I couldn’t handle the pain, achiness, the random fevers, the bleeding. I called to schedule a scope and because I like to be somewhat awake the doctor told me the colon that was left now has ulcerative colitis.
