Sick to My Stomach...Literally!

A few days ago I made this post about being sick to my stomach. Well after visiting my doctor two weeks ago, I found out that I am literally sick to my stomach :(


I had a quick out patient procedure a week ago and the doctor took a few biopsies of my colon. The plan is to test for cancer cells and infections that might have caused the inflammation.


History...

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was in high school...over 20 years ago. My body has worked well with the medication that I have been given and I haven't had any probelms in YEARS. I visited my doctor in May for my annual check up and my results were so good that he didn't need to see me again until 2011. But my stomach has been feeling so yucky lately so I thought it best to make an appointment sooner than later.


I finally heard back from my doctor today and discovered that I do NOT have any cancer cells (Praise GOD) and that I do NOT have an infection. Basically, my colon is just inflamed...probably due to stress, stress, and MORE stress. Go figure?!?!

I go back to the doctor next week to decided what the next steps should be. I am predicting that either my medication will change or that I will be given a supplemental medication to go with the prescription that I already take.


Please keep me in your prayers...I could really use them.

Lianna- I totally understand what you are going through, I had a midgut malrotation, and after many surgeries, I finally am managing, of course now along with my IF, but I can totally understand the sick to your stomach feeling!

God Bless you sweetie!
