Re: problems drinking water
well i've had UC throughout large colon and proctal for 12 years. strangely my small colon has been closing up in patches for 2 years, but shows no sign of damage on a CT scan. scan result said unknown reason for suboptimal distention in small colon, which is expanded colon not closed up. gastro thinks it's just scar tissue that doesn't show.
i take mesalazine, azathioprine, lanzoprazole (for hiatus hernia). this feeling isn't strictly like reflux, just seems difficult and harder to drink water for some reason, except as i say when eating when i feel super thirsty. sure it's a sign of something.
