Hi Everyone!! My name is Kimberly I’m 32, I live in Lawrence, KS GO KU!!! and in August 2011 I had my first sign of blood.
My Colitis Experience:
In August of 2011 I had my first sign of blood, it went away in a week so I thought nothing of it really.
Possibly Hemorrhoids Right?
Then in October it came back. Had the colonoscopy and they said they had seen no sign of any particular disease just inflammation. So, at this point I am sooooo…. relieved and thanking God, the Universe whatever. Because I had pictured my life with something so terrible and didn’t think I had the emotional strength to deal with something like that. But then I recieved the lab results. Confirming moderate colitis. The doc suggested no meds at this point. Just wait to see if it comes back.
Well guess what, it started four days ago. I have not called the doctor yet. But my emotional stress is through the roof. I just had a baby boy 9 months ago”JACK”. This is suppose to be a happy time. I have been crying non-stop and I’m just so scared. I’m scared of removal. I’m trying to cope, but just writing this has me in tears.
So, from what I’ve heard on this site, you have all tried many different medications. And nothing really sounds all that great. Side effects that are the same as symptoms, it still comes back frequently, etc…
I want to try to get this under control by diet and probiotic’s first. Before I go jumping into medication.
Maybe it will only last a few weeks this time. Maybe not. There’s so many contradictions on food. I don’t no where to start. And I have to try to be happy.
CAN you be happy?
Has anyone been successful at keeping it under control without ever taking meds? What about the Probiotic Saccharomyces? I bought that and the boswella and aloe juice.
