Colonoscopy failure due to inflammation h

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi. Went for first colonoscopy first July but even with sedation they could only do first section before first bend as to inflamed, so do not know where bleeding is from or how much is affected. Have been put on 40mg Prednisolone from second July decreasing by 5mg weekly seen no improvement from bleeding (only 4 days so far ) waiting for appointment with gastroenterology. Any help or advice appreciated as feel I have been left in the dark also have no spleen as removed 45 years ago for It?

    Hi, one more thing, though the vocanic water has helped me, I will add that my UC really stated in a non exercising phase in my life, it's for me always helped my condition by exercise. It isn't true for all, Sir Steve Redgrave, doesn't he have colitis? That water tastes better, anyhow.
