    Had colitis for years, pooped constantly my worse time was 18 poops in one hour with lots of blood. Rushed into hospital one day as I was so weak and barely conscious…..Had emergency operation to remove my very badly infected colon. Had ileostomy bag fitted, hated it, cried a lot, but now dealing with it and its soooo much better than having to rush into toilet every few minutes and the accidents. Been told unable to have reversal operation due to the bad infection, having to have another operation soon to remove the remainder of my rectum and to have it stitched up. Do feel sorry for myself sometimes but I was told that I would have definitely died and my family would have been burying me within 6months if I hadn’t have had the operation…So yes, Im glad to be alive and have a bag !!

    This is in regards to Q14 can you eat pancakes with colitis?

    Well…. OF COURSE! I have had colitis for around 7 years, at the moment I’m in remission with no meds and eat a ton of pancakes! I had a whole stack on Friday and another stack this morning :) My girlfriend is half Dutch so that’s pretty much what she lives on haha. I have found that eating what you feel like eating does you no harm as long as it’s in moderation. So to the people who are worried about a life without pancakes, don’t stress! In fact stressing about not eating them probably will do you more harm than just eating them. ENJOY!
