What was thought to be E-Coli...
Hello all, 9 day's ago I had found out that I had a really bad case of UC, I had suffered from UC symptoms for about 6 weeks, In the 6 weeks I went to an local doc, he did blood tests and said to me that it looked like E-Coli, That was it.. He told me to come back in a week, and so I did, he then went on to say things like this takes time to clear up, and that I should not have any worry's about it. He give me no pills or anything for this ''E-Coli''.
So I waited for a long time for this really bad pain, blood, and that to go away, but it never, things became worse, I lost 2stone, became very pale, and was starting to be sick every time I put food in my mouth, it had come to the time where I had given up, so I went into A&E, And as soon as I walked into the door they had put me right into the bed, and fired drips at me, my heart rate was really high, they also found out that my white blood cells where to high, and so I was transported to an other Hospital but made to sleep in A&E for a day and a half with no full treatment because I was not in an Hospital ward. I could have been there for days and slowly I was getting the feeling that my body was just going to give up, my stools became blood, just blood, But luckily, one Doc came to see me, walked away, came back and said he had got me a bed in a ward. As soon as I was put in the ward, they stuck liquid in me to clear out my bottom, with in an hour of being placed in the ward they moved me to the camera room, stuck it in, and within 2mins the guy turned to me and said that I had a very bad flare up of ulster coloitus, so much so that my colon was starting to die. Luckily I've responded to all treatments and after 9 days in Hospital I'm out again, living a new lifestyle.
I'm a little worried, I mean I trusted that GP and he told me that I had E-Coli, even after blood tests. I really want to complain about him because he made me suffer for 6 weeks. I mean how can I trust an other GP again? Should I just go Private from now on and pay £200 to be looked at?
Well that was my story, I wanted to share it with you all but I do need some help with the diet. Witch is why I'm really here.
So the diet plan for me is not to have any Fiber for 6 weeks, after the 6 weeks I can start to build it up again (So the woman says) However, I don't understand what it all means, does it mean after 6 weeks I can eat all the crap of the day till I get to a fiber limit again? Do I just increase my intake a little more like eat some foods that seem to be currently forbidden to me? I don't get it honestly. How do you guys deal with the diet thing? I'm really depressed about the whole thing because most of the foods that I like, I can't eat now. =(
Thanks! And I'd like to hear any storys that might be like mine. Should I complain about the GP?
