Hi , I was diagnosed with severe colitis two months ago.
I did not know what was happening to my body, lost a lot of blood and have been in the hospital twice in seven weeks. My last hospital stay was two nights after a really bad flare up. Doctors said my bowel was too swollen to even do the colonoscopy so I am on steroids now. So far they are working. I am also on Colifoam and enemas at night. I have not touched alcohol and am on a low residue diet. My only fear is that I finish the steroids in two weeks and then head back in for a colonoscopy, but I worry that it will all start again when I finish my medications. I am also on Pentasa 2mg twice daily.
