i was diagnosed with pan-ulcerative colitis. after numerous of hospital stays, tons of medication, and steroid treatments... i took my health into my own hands. i was laying in the hospital bed, with morphine being dripped into my veins and being told my entire colon needed to come out and i'd have to wear a bag for the rest of my life. before my final hospital stay, i read everyday, all day, trying to understand the disease. it doesn't exist in many of the countries across the world. there's a reason for that. we eat crap and we don't de-stress. i came home and detoxed off all the meds. go really slow if on steroids. if you come off them too fast, it'll mess your body up. i got probiotics and 3 days later, i ate prime rib and didn't have any problem. now, i don't recommend that all the time, but i'd been real sick, hadn't been able to eat, and i was craving it. i started seeing a counselor to deal with rage. i started eating alot of green food. drink a small amount of coffee in the morning black. it's a natural laxative. i found a doctor who eliminated food allergies, and that's what both diseases are all about. i have had about 6 relapses, but went to my alternative doctor, who applied pressure points and other things, and i was fine, whereas before it would mean hospitalization. "doctors" don't want you to get well. they would lose too much money if they told you about food and stress and how almost all diseases would be erradicated if we did those 2 things. EXERCISE.
i've tried to help some people, but they love the attention that being sick creates. then they're are the others who DO want to have a life and live.....if you're serious about getting HEALED, email me. i've been through that hell. if you stay on those meds, you will eventually, without a doubt, have a new health problem every 6-12 months. you're meds will be your ball and chain. as if being stuck in a bathroom all the time wsn't bad enough. you will only get worse physically. don't let this happen to you. don't sit there and read all the crap that the pharmacautical companies and "doctors" tell you. talk to people who have gotten better. go to the library, there are PLENTY of books on these 2 diseases and you will understand what i'm talking about. MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN CURED or as the "doctors" would say, we're in "remission". best wishes.
ulcerative colitis and im only 18?
Do not focus on disease.
What you think most and focus on it, can become true
Ulcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative colitis is a form of colitis, a disease of the intestine, specifically the large intestine or colon, that includes characteristic ulcers, or open sores, in the colon. The main symptom of active disease is usually constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. IBD is often confused with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a troublesome, but much less serious, condition. Ulcerative colitis has similarities to Crohn's disease, another form of IBD. Ulcerative colitis is an intermittent disease, with periods of exacerbated symptoms, and periods that are relatively symptom-free. Although the symptoms of ulcerative colitis can sometimes diminish on their own, the disease usually requires treatment to go into remission.
Ulcerative colitis occurs in 35–100 people for every 100,000 in the United States, or less than 0.1% of the population. The disease is more prevalent in northern countries of the world, as well as in northern areas of individual countries or other regions. Although ulcerative colitis has no known cause, there is a presumed genetic component to susceptibility. The disease may be triggered in a susceptible person by environmental factors. Although dietary modification may reduce the discomfort of a person with the disease, ulcerative colitis is not thought to be caused by dietary factors. Ulcerative colitis is treated as an autoimmune disease. Treatment is with anti-inflammatory drugs, immunosuppression, and biological therapy targeting specific components of the immune response. Colectomy (partial or total removal of the large bowel through surgery) is occasionally necessary, and is considered to be a cure for the disease
complications with Crohn's disease?
I'm 17, been diagnosed for a year and a half. I don't know how much help I'll be answering your question, I just wanted you to know you're not alone.
I've also never been into remission, but imagine how amazing it'll feel when we do! I've never been on those meds, but I think they need time. I've been on Azathioprine for about 9 months and they keep telling me "Just give it time, give it time". Easy for them to say, huh? Eventually you will be out of pain. They'll do everything they can to find a cocktail of meds that works for you, or if all else fails there's some surgery. But that's if all else fails, and it sounds like it'd give you some freedom. Mine also appears to be getting worse, doctors are very careful and they won't let you out into the world if they think you're going to keel over! Stress only worsens the symptoms so keep calm. Have they done steroids with you? They suck and have noticeable side effects but they work.
If you feel worried just talk to your doctors. Or there's the forum. www.crohnsforum.com I'm hannaaaah666, add me if you ever want to chat :)
