Hi, i have been reading all of these stories over the last few weeks trying to get some comfort from others suffering with this horrible disease.
im 29 years old and 4 weeks ago out of the blue i started getting sharp lower left stomach pain whilst working.. at this point it was bearable but i was aware it was very different to stomach pain in the past, the next day i went to see my GP and they advised me i could have a urine infection and gave me anti biotics.
by thursday i was hunched over in the worst pain i had ever experienced in my life with lower back pain and lower left stomach pain. i needed to go to the emergency department so off i headed.
after an x-ray i was shocked when the doctor told me i have a perforation in my sigmoid colon! after a Ct scan they told me it had nearly healed over since it had happened. i had a 4 day stay on iv antibiotics and liquid diet.. the pain was awful even morphine wouldnt touch it, things got better the pain almost went completely, by the time i was discharged with a 7 day oral course i felt back to normal had 2 weeks off work.
then bang a week on the pain returns i was inflamed again. not going to lie i hadnt done much research and assumed i could get back to eating a balanced diet, wow how wrong i was, i feel like if this happens again i wouldnt be able to handle the pain again, this is day 1 of the pain subsiding, i havent eaten for 4 days and im so scared to eat again incase the pain returns 😦 what do you guys usually eat after ? i was going to try some mash potato but im not sure if i can brave it?
