I literally just made an account so if I am posting this in the wrong place feel free to send me a link to where I should be asking this. Thanks!
I've been sick with ulcerative colitis since I was about 2 (currently 21) for the past 8 months or so I haven't been tolerating food very well. When I eat, even if it's very small and chewed up very well, I bloat horribly, get nauseous and feel extremely full. To put this in to perspective my stomach is about 32 inches around on an empty stomach but after I eat it bloats to around 37 inches. My gastroenterologist said I was probably just sick because of constipation but it has been 4 months since I struggled with that and I'm still having all these issues. Its very painful and extremely uncomfortable. I thought it was my UC all of this time but I just had a colonoscopy (literally yesterday) and I'm showing signs of a healing colon which is great! But it doesnt help me find an answer or treatment for my issue. I did notice that while doing the liquid diet days before the procedure I was the happiest I have been in a long time. No pain, no bloating, lots of energy, etc. Does anyone have a hunch of what could be going on? Thanks!
