Introduction to Troy:
I was diagnosed in 2008 as one of indianas youngest documented cases I was embarrassed for 8 months hiding my issues while still goin to work and high school until I no longer could hide it any longer I joined the army my senior year of high school and had lots of plans for my future was hitting the weights and was 180 of solid musle and wilt to a mere 113 by time I finally made it to the er my potassium level was a dangerous 2.7 low enough for organ failure drs were shocked but with blood transfusions and steriods aka prednosone I pulled thru it I had a lot of flareups till I finally found my life pace including eating habits and meds so this is where my advise comes into play with my drastic battle with uc is humira I developed another cronic inflammatory disease called angcolozing spondinitias a spinal artritas I was givin humira for it and works amazing but was also told by my ruemotoligist that it has been proven to help and prevent chron s and uc and boy were they right its amazing and works very well especially if taken with regular uc meds like sulfisalazine or aszocole so if anyone out there is battling severe uc and humira hasn’t been a option mentioned by your gastroenterologist please ask!!!! I’ve battled many different things in life none more challenging then uc I seen 2 different drs in one year and they both would just get my current flare up under control then tell me I was a difficult case and they felt they couldn’t no longer help me then I found dr. Chiorion in Indianapolis Indiana at the iu medical center its a teaching hospital he’s the dr of all drs he actually taught the other two drs but didn’t seem right cause he was so nice and intelligent and helped me so well it was like he was the cure for uc lol they are the leading center in gastroenterologist and would suggest it to any UC patents in or even someone willing to travel to distance to consider it as an option also I’ve had major help managing my uc for years.
Where I’d like to be in 1 year:
