my name is Karen. I live in California; I’m 42 years old and have 4 grown children and 9 grandbabys and a great hubby of 5 years. I am new to UC.
My name is Karen; on the evening of Jan 20th I ate dinner and had muffin afterwards. I immediately felt sick and horrible stomach ache cramps. I thought it was from something i ate; diarrhea and blood and horrible cramps so bad that i had to get on the floor for fear of passing out! My husband said i went white as a ghost! I am always saying it would be better tomorrow! but as the night went on it got worse and after 9 or 10 bouts of blood and poop i started just passing only blood clots some scary stuff! The next morning after a awful night, I actually asked to go to hospital! after 8 eight hours of IV’s and blood draws ;morphine and other strong pain meds didn’t even touch the pain. I had a cat scan and was told i had UC! Never ever heard of that. Spent 4 days in hospital, and given flagyl and something else. so its been about a month now and still confused about what to eat and not eat! my stomach always hurts and Ive never drinkin so much water in my life. I see the gastroenterologist on march 16 for first time and don’t know what or if gonna be put on med? what kind ? and when i get to have a colonoscopy and what they’ll find? so far my day consist of A hot cup of water, 2 or 3 swallows of coffee, a can of ensure, maybe yogurt, then maybe oatmeal and maybe squash,avocado and maybe peaches and a little leaf lettuce or spinach and tofu. I’m just trying to feel better! some days i have to wait a while to see if I’m gonna be able to go anywhere or not! SSSSSoooo frustrated! Can any one please tell me what is the best way to eat. Luckily for me I enjoy so many different foods.
