I Have UC(ulcerative colitis)
I was just diagnosed last week after dealing with it for almost 4 months – it just took that long to get a colonoscopy! And then, the prep for the colonoscopy almost killed me – because they didn’t know I had UC, I took all 3 packets of picolax and it irritated my entire colon – in fact my GI dr said I had NO normal tissue left in my entire colon. So now I’m on prednisone, but still eating a very limited diet basically consisting of fruits and cooked veggies and grains. This definitely helps with bleeding and was the diet I was eating to control my sypmtoms before I was diagnosed. I am 37 years old and have four little kids, so I would LOVE to get back to normal and my goal is to eat Christmas dinner!
Slippery elm and phyllium seemed to be helping before i was diagnosed and I take about 60+ billion probiotics daily. Thankfully I’ve only had to deal with cramping after this horrible colonoscopy experience.
Here’s My Question:
