has anyone with fap suffered from uveitis thanks.
Yes , had my J Pouch completed 9 months ago . Long time IBD patient . About 6 yrs my left eye started acting up . Despite a good deal of treatment the eye has suffered a lot of degradation and my sight in the eye is pretty poor . I’m seeing a specialist in Ocular inflamation in Ft Lauderdale FL and he has helped . I have inflammatory debris blocking my vision and unfortunately Laser won’t help . They are saying conventional surgery is not worth the risk . I didn’t always maintain the follow up appo8ntments I should have . I’d probably a little better off if I had been more diligent . Follow up , seek the very best specialists and do your homework to save your vision . When I got back to treating the eye a few months ago I didn’t even realize that though the front of the eye looked good , the back of it was highly inflamed . So involved with my IBD that I wasn’t getting regular check ups on my eye .
oh sorry to hear that this came on me so sudden last week it wasn't that bad to start with as I had been to optician as my was twitching and was abit red I then went to my gp as had severe headaches then over the weekend the headaches got worse I then took myself back to optician he said the eye was abit inflamed told me to go back in 2 weeks the day after I went to optician I then took myself to emergency dept at hospital to get another opinion they then made an emergency appointment for the day after to the hospital that deals with the eye I was diagnosed with uveitis but not sure if fap would have any connection with it but maybe having the pouch would due to it becoming inflamed?
We are far more prone to get Uveitis than the general population . I have Psoriasis and Psa which are also risk factors . Steroid eye drops will help . Good luck and stay on top of this .
what is is psa? I hope you keep well too and I will defo keep on top of this uveitis take care thanks for the info very much appreciated. maria
