Recent colonoscopy

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi All i was admitted into hospital last week as i was having some serious flare ups, this ended me having a third camera job and i have ulcerations and inflammed areas in my large intestine, they did check my small and there was no evidence and the consultants feel that this is UC however they are awaiting confirmation from the biopsys to ensure, is it is confirmed they are looking at surgical removal as i am on retroantivaral drugs, as the masalizine and steriods are not working and i am not a very good candident for immune suppresents. so just have to wait 7 days for the results. will keep you posted

Thanks

John

    Hi John, I hope you have UC only. Have they said they are able to remove colon by keyhole sugery? When they measure for stoma site make sure they position in a good place so clothes don't get in the way. Hope you feel better soon.
