I am 44 yrs old and suffered abdominal pain and visits to the toilet on average 15 times a day for 5 yrs or so…. did nothing about it really. I had my colonoscopy in February this year and two days later was rushed in to hospital with a suspect perforated colon..5 days of morphine later was sent home and this is where the mix up occurred, I thought there was nothing wrong as told but this turns out was just that there was no tear in the colon. The consultant had already sent a letter to my GP about UC, he didnt pass it on to me so I just left the symptoms raging away. Then in August this year had a letter from my GP informing me of the outcome of the original colonoscopy .. you guessed it …I have got severe UC…left for ages to fester.. today is my first day with the Enema, suppositories and the oral tablets 4400 mg per day…. is this usual and what can I expect now…my wife and children have been amazing, but what happens now?
What can I expect in the future and has anybody had problems with employers?
All of the posts from “Annonymous UC” are from ulcerative colitis people who anonymously submitted stories or Doctor Reviews, medication, supplement reviews etc… I post all these stories to the site, but they’re different from my own personal stories so hopefully this account makes more sense:) -Adam – founder of iHaveUC.com
