I'm a young girl (just turned 17) who was having bowel issues. Today I had a endoscopy and a colonoscopy. They told me that I had UC in my rectum. They said it was fairly mild (but enough to see inflammation and ulcers/puss -sorry for TMI) and sent me home with instructions to take 2 lialda pills in the morning and a suppository at night for two weeks. They took biopsies and said they would be back in a week (I don't know specifically what they are looking for.) They haven't said anything about a follow up appointment but would think that I would need one to talk about what going to happen in the future (well, more than two weeks.) I'm hoping that they will call or email about one, but I'm not positive. So my main question is, what's next? Did this happen to any of you in this way? Will I be on a lot of medication for a while? Any information would be great! Just a little confused about what my future will hold. Thanks!
