I have ulcerative colitis and currently in a mild flare. Consultant isn't too concerned and suggests increasing regular maintenance dose of 2.4g pd Octasa to 4.8g but no immuno suppressants at this stage.
Two weeks ago I had knee surgery by arthroscopy to repair damaged meniscus cartilage and am disappointed at the slow recovery. Still a lot of swelling around the joint and difficult to walk. I went to see the physio today to be checked over and for some reassurance that nothing serious is wrong. She agreed that recovery is slower than expected and suggested it may be because of the IBD flare. That is making sense to me. Anyone else had this experience? I've had joint pain in the past with UC but that was to do with tapering off steroids.
