I have only had half of them for 8 years due to my UC.
The recent months have brought new symptoms...such as the rectal pain,fatigue,weight loss, some episodes of fecal incontinence,and the feeling that after a bowel movemnet the stool would feel like some of it was still stuck in me. So yes...I think I have a lot to worry about.
My question was actually about why websites call these symptoms of the disease when it is "well advanced".
Is this true?
