Hi Ladies:

Off track here...I'm sure some of you have read my post. my GI doctor called and said I have colitis and I'm back on Flagel and he is sending me for numerous blood test to find out why I'm inflammed.

Anyone know anything about Colitis????

Thank you

told I need a hyst-havent scheduled yet

Hi I'm brand-spankin' new! I had to have a colonoscopy last week to rule out rectal bleeding from my postmenopausal bleeding. My test showed no colitis, or anything. I was relieved.But, now the doctor suggests a hysterectomy, and cystocele and rectocele repair. This has been a very long time of not feeling well, and not being settled on what was happening. Glad to be here-hope I did this right.

Wanted to suggest you try WebMD. They have some really great info on conditions and treatment options and what to ask your doctor.

Hope the flagyl does the trick!

Hi JuJuJu,
I have colitis. It was diagnosed postpartum with my first daughter 13 yrs ago. There are many different types - or areas of the large intestine that can be affected and also different severities of the disease. For the last 2 yrs I have been in remission with no symptoms. I am hoping the hysterectomy doesn't activate it again.
I believe that sometimes the term Colitis is used rather indiscriminately. When my symptoms first occured I had a sigmoidoscopy and a biopsy of the large intestine which confirmed Colitis. In past years I have had colonoscopies to see the full extent of the disease.

When looking for information you might also search under IBD (Intestinal bowel disease).
