This is my very first support group ever for UC. I am 30 years old and my symtom's started at 23 years old. I was not surprised about the diagnosis my mother who died 8 yr's ago lived with this condition since the age of 18 and died at 56. My UC is very painfull and last about 6 months of the year each year it gets longer. I am on asacol 3 pills 3 times daily. And at the moment i have not much bleeding but the pain is worse than labor!!! I am in pain a total of 3 to 4 times a week and that is when i feel good. I also have a GI doctor that believes that i dont need pain med's and a pcp who gave me 2 Rx's for vicodin in the last 3 years but stopped giving me them Feb last year. I have tried to take it day to day. I am trying to find a new pcp doc but today i gave up today and went to the ER i was in pain for more than 5 hours today constant. And my discharge nurse had UC and she got rid of it with surgery called Ileoanal anastomosis. And she has been a normal human ever since. Give me your thoughts.
