I was referred to the hospital and had a colonoscopy at the very start of October. I was referred by my GP and I had experienced blood in my stools for a long time and it seemed to be getting a lot worse. On the day of my colonoscopy I was given the report and told it appeared to be ulcerative colitis affecting 2 areas of my bowel.
I was immediately started on mesalazine 400mg three times a day. Soon after this I experienced my first 'flare up' which was horrendous (stomach pain, urgency for toilet, lots of blood loss). I had a 2 week course of prednisolone and began to feel better.
But a few weeks later I feel like I may be beginning to have another flare up. I have not yet had a follow up appointment from the hospital, nor have I seen my GP since the course of steroids, and not sure what to do now. This is very new to me. Your advice is much appreciated
