I’m 30 years old had has uc for ten years now and I’m tired of dealing with this illness. I do however love to read,write, and play sports.
Symptoms I’m Dealing With:
Nausea, tiredness, lack of appetite, and constant back and abdominal pain and constant constipation. Along with major bloatness.
I have had uc now for ten years and I’m to the point where i want the surgery; however I’m scared to have because I don’t know what to except and i want to be able to have children still if anyone has advice please help me out. I know the longer you keep the colon the higher of chance of getting cancer every year. My doctor says that we will need to see how damage is done and go from there, but I don’t want to wait anymore to decide if i need the surgery or not. I’m also taking asceol 1600mg 3 times a day and it’s hard to tell if the meds are working or not. I’m in constant pain and constant constantipation.If you know of anything that would help on daily basis for pain and any recommendations on new meds that could work. I live in Canada so I might be limited to what i have access to. I iv meds better than the oral meds? I’m tired of taking meds orally and want a change in them. My doctors won’t listen to what i want to have happen with me. What type of foods to help with the constipation and the bloating? How does the J pouch work and is it safe to have inside you and does it affect you sexually? Also can colitis lead into Crohn’s at all? I don’t eat a lot of meat and I love raw veggies and fruit should i also be taking a multivitmin?
Has ayone used Align at all and if so how does work and any reaction from taking it? If some people could help me answer these questions that would be great and appreciated also thanks for the support for those who can help me out.
