I’m 28 years old and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was 9.
I’ve been in and out of remission my entire life. It should be the happiest time of my life as i’m planning for my wedding and killer honeymoon in June but of course it’s caused a flair up.
I went in for a colonoscopy last week and since i was first diagnosed only the last 10 inches of my colon was ulcerated. But as of last week (the last time i was checked was only a year ago) half of my colon is diseased. None of my meds are working (asacol, canasa, prednisone) and my doctor wants to put me on immunosuppresants and the side effects sound awful!!
I just started feeling a LITTLE better taking probiotics daily. Has anyone heard of this 7-day brown rice diet? I found it at http://users.sa.chariot.net.au/~dna/IBD/index.htm I’m willing to try it if people are getting results!
Does anyone have suppliments to recommend to me, anything natural? I don’t want to be a bleeding, bloated bride :(
