Hi, Im in your same boat, but waiting to have my colonscopy, the only thing I can think of to tell you, is...it will be okay. If you do have UC, it will be okay, it may not seem like it, but UC is not a death warrant, like AIDS or rare cancers.
Hey American Girl,
The doc doing the scope could only tell you what he saw so youll have to wait for the results. hopefully it wont be too long.
were you waching the scope being done. you're braver than me ill tell you.
I have my 2nd scope on monday and im happy to be out during.
did he prescribe you any meds at all. ulcerative procitis is treated the same way as uc as far as i know.
Just so you know, they told me proctitis too but the biopsies came back UC.
Yes there is a correlation between antibiotic use and IBD. Ive read about lots who can make some kinda connection.
