I’m young mother of 3! I live for my children, I’ve lost 3 babies and had 3 healthy babies so I am blessed.
Hi everyone, I’m 26 years old but I was diagnosed with UC when I was 18.
At that time it was under control. Since i had children my whole patterns has changed. I’m frequently soiling myself as I’m not having any warnings I need to go like before the pain was a warning. I’m having a flare up at moment its lasted 6weeks but I’m having pain in my legs,my back and hips my legs by far the worst!!! I’m waiting for an upper GI and another colonoscopy as I’m physically and mentally exhausted I’m scared to leave the house with fear of not making it to the toilet.i take painkillers and mesalizine and steroids (short course!).
Mesalazine oral tablets work better than suppositories. I think that is because the rectum is inflammed and it’s used to pushing waste out rather than take anything in.

Any advice any fellow sufferers can give would be amazing. I’m still young with 3 beautiful kids don’t want this to ruin their childhood with a sick mummy.
