Re: I was in the hospital

Thank you but I've had the Mirena for years with no issue. I don't think the Mirena has anything to do with it. My Mirena is placed in the proper spot. My period didn't become worse until I had my colon resection in 2014. I think it's more related to that. I don't see my gynecologist too often.

Re: I was in the hospital

boxhill, Thank you. I only take vitamin D twice a week and one chewable vitamin C a day when I remember. I'm not very big on supplements. Low residue does seem to help a little but I still do eat some fiber. Restoralax is helping a little bit. I feel best when I don't eat but I can't do that because...

Re: I was in the hospital

Thank you CRguy! My stomach is still bothering me. I had my second Pfizer shot yesterday so I'm feeling the effects of that as well.

Re: I was in the hospital

Thank you WriterGirl1969. I'm having a bad day with cramping and pain today. I wish the biopsies were back already. I will feel better once it's confirmed that it's ischemic colitis and not ulcerative colitis or my cancer has returned. Waiting is hard!

Re: I was in the hospital

Thank you Lee! :) i wish that I knew when this feeling of being depleted would go away as well as my stomach cramping and having a bruised feeling on the inside. All I can do is to take it day by day. I think that it's going to take a while for me to feel better. My body is still healing from this i...

Re: I was in the hospital

Thank you both. I was hospitalized in 2015 for ischemic colitis. That was my first attack. I've had other attacks since but none with bleeding until last week. I have been on a daily low dose aspirin since 2018. My GI believes the change in blood flow from my surgery causes my ischemic colitis attac...

I was in the hospital

Last Tuesday, I had a really awful time. I was in the bathroom for 3 hours with severe diarrhea. I was in so much pain that I was on the bathroom floor in the fetal position and I was sweating. I vomited and got the chills. I then had a lot of rectal bleeding. There were blood clots in the bleeding ...
