What’s Up with the WEIGHT GAIN?
Hello, I am 23 years old. I found out about a week ago that I have Ulcerative Colitis (UC). My mother also suffers from it to. For awhile I thought it was something totally different then UC. I had had a surgery in 09 when the problems started, I just thought it was the surgery aftermath. I THOUGHT WRONG! I had lost so much weight from the surgery & with the UC it kept the pounds off, Recently I gained a bunch of weight, I don’t know how due to everything I ate came right back out, I kept to the same exercises and diet..but still gained weight, its like the more I used the restroom the more I gained..I was always getting sick and still do where I feel like hell hit me off my tracks, but after reading up on UC, I realized its just part of a flare up. I would like someone to talk to, that could help me out a lil. Can UC make me gain weight? Can it make me swell up?? After I changed my diet and started paying more attention to wait causes me to have issues I thought I would loose weight but Im gaining it!! And the doctor can’t tell me why!!! I need help, I’m lost and confused!!
