Three Different Ulcerative Colitis Stories from 3 Separate People.
Here is the video which talks about all three of the different stories:
Colazal and Bad Reaction To It:
colozal was not good for me at all… i started having a flare and my gave me it and said it would take a few weeks to get the flare under control. I ended up in the hopsital for a week, had every adverse symptom that the warning label had and not one of the dr.s took me off it. finally got released from the hospital and my dr told me i was lucky i hadnt had a hospital stay and i needed to learn to deal with the disease that i was lucky until now. STILL IN PAIN, i got a second opinion. The new g.i. dr took me off colozal and put me on flagyll and prednisone, and digex, within 3 weeks i was back to normal.
Hi everyone, my names Thomas, I am 25 years old and have been suffering from UC for 6 years now. The last few years have been pretty rough as I feel like I have been sick more than healthy. . It’s as if I have come to terms with the way my life currently is. Somebody asked me the other day, “normally, how often do you use the washroom and what does it come out like”? I responded, “normal, I don’t even know what normal is or feels like anymore”. I am at wits end with this stupid disease. I just want a normal life. My medications: 3 years of prednisone and just started remicade
