UC or What?
I am a 38yr old female. About 12yrs ago had my gall bladder removed and ever since then I have suffered with daily diarrhea. I didn't work a job so basically life revolved around timing eating to when I would be home. I did finally get a colonoscopy back in 2006 and was diagnosed with UC. Weird thing though, UC starts in the rectum and works its way up, I am opposite.My transverse colon has the worst inflammation with very little towards the rectum. I started working last yr and have been very sick. I absolutely can not eat except very little in the evening because everything goes straight through me and I would not be able to work running to the bathroom. For the first time since the diarrhea started, I have lost 20lbs, become quite anemic, and pretty weak. I did have another colonoscopy last oct. which was pretty much the same as the first. I don't get fever and chills, just can't handle food. I even tried just juicing and that would go straight through. Now two months ago I developed SEVERE rectal pain. I have been living in hell with pain, I have had to run out of work crying. I am having much less(almost none)frank blood than before, but dr said hemrrhoids. Well I have had hemrrhoids for yrs with no pain, this pain in only on the left and radiates through the cheek, down the leg and through the vaginal wall. When I get the sever bouts of pain it drains me down to nothing and of course I am terrified to eat because going to the bathroom (about 1/2hr later) sets it off and it lasts hours. I finally got so desperate I am on prednisone for the first time. I am going for a sigmoidoscopy in a few weeks. Has anyone else had pain like this with UC?
