My name is Sherya, I am from India – Gujarat. I am 15 years of age. About 1.5 years a go my stomach was paining and I turned out that I am having UC.
Hi , before 1.5 years back (Jan’10) my stomach was paining, and I told my mother. My mother took me to the doctor. Doctor gave me some antibacterial medicines. Even eating 5 days my pain was raising rather than decrease. Then after I was having blood with stool. So again we went to doctor and doctor checked me . Finally I was diagnosed with UC. I have suffered lot of pain last year. I was in SSC(10th) when my disease was diagnosed. I am from Bhavnagar, it is very small city. So my father and mother took me Baroda, where comparatively better doctors and surgery equipments are available.
We went to a doctor. They game me treatment for 10 days at hospital. The medicines are very costly and continuous I used to take medicines. Although my health was not recovered with betterment. I continuously suffered from bleeding and stomach pain. My joints and body are paining every time.
We at Bhavnagar, felt very sad.
This was my worst year in my life I thought.
In 1.5 years, for 3 months I felt a bit better, and with grace of God I could prepare for examination of SSS during this time. I taken exam in March-2011 and my papers were gone very fine. I took 85% in only 3 months exam preparation. But from the last few days I was suffering a lot from pain.
Finally, we recently we decided to do surgery.
But my mom and dad are worried as my age is 15 years only
and I will have trouble in future life, like caring of bags,
and other ladies related problem.
Any one can help me to satisfy my mother and father telling that after operation problems can be reduced and bags can be removed after some months..
Please help me..by replying about after operation patients situation
