Today is kind of bitter sweet. For the past five years I have been thinking and was told that I had Ulcerative Colitis. I should start at the beginning of the story.In early 2002 I had chronic diarrhea to the point that I practically lived in my bathroom. At the time I was working on a hog farm and a bout of clostridium was going through the farm that I worked at. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with c. diff. I was treated for the c. diff. and responded well to the treatment for about a month and a half the I relapsed and the doctors where at a loss to what I had. I lost a lot of wieght and had 4 colonoscopies. The doctors thought that I had Ulcerative Colitis and they started treating me for that. The treatments seemed to work but I would have flair ups where I would have extreme pain and constant diarrhea.Since then I have been under the assumption that I had Ulcerative Colitis. Since then I have not been able to digest any vegetables. I have been dealing with this for 5 years now and I have been avoiding things that cause flairs ups. A year ago I had a really bad flair up that sent me to the Emergency Room. The pain was so bad that I had to have a double dose of morphine and that just made the pain bearable. My family doctor reffered me to a Gastrointerologist here because the doctors I used to have were back in Iowa.A year later I finally saw a GI doctor and was scheduled for a colonoscopy to check the progress of the Ulcerative Colitis. I went through the procedure and it was discovered that the colitis that I had in 2002 was actually Pseudomembranous Colitis and not Ulcerative Colitis and that I now have IBS. I am not sure what to think now but I know that I did not like the what was forecasted with Ulcerative Colitis. With this new diagnosis I am hoping that I will be able to live a better life and maybe get the IBS under control.I am sure that I will learn a lot in this group. Thanks for listening to my ramblings.
