I've just got home after a 6 day stay in hospital due to stomach pain and loosing a lot of blood mucus and pus in stool. I had a similar bout last year which Dr thought was just a nasty bug but now that I've ended up in hospital they suspect ulcerative colitis. I've got to say Ive never been so scared in my life they thought it might have been diverticulitis but ruled that out after a ct scan. I had all the blood tests, inflammation markers and white blood cells are up and haemoglobin has dropped. They've put me on augmentin and metronidazole but I really don't think I am agreeing with the Augmentin. I'm losing more mucus and blood but Dr was adamant I need to be on both antibiotics to get rid of infection in bowel and to prevent perforation although they did admit that augmentin could cause problems. What I don't understand is my stool sample showed no infection so confused Any advice much appreciated? I didn't eat for three days but hat didn't help slow anything down so I've been on half a banana and some vegetable broth, I just can't face food at the moment. Any advice please? cry
