I was 33 and pregnant with my second son in 1994. I thought I had bleeding hemorrhoids. My OB told me “No” and to go see a colon doctor. After my first sigmoidoscopy, I was immediately diagnosed with UC! I was shocked! It was down hill from then. I’ve been sick ever since. Bla, bla, bla. Fast forward to 2011. After my yearly colonoscopy, my doc told me he found pre-cancer cells. Sooo, September 2011 I had my colon removed. Everything went according to plan. My take down surgery was January 2012. Three weeks in the hospital! My body wouldn’t cooperate. It was a nightmare! Not a good memory. But, I’m here to talk about it. So that’s good.
