I’ve suffered with ulcerative colitis for over three years and because of toilet changes now up to five times a day mainly loose but not necessarily diarrhoea and also seeing unopened octasa tablets in the stools they booked me for a flexible sigmoidoscopy.
Now before the scope they changed my meds from octasa 6x800mg daily to salafalk granules 2x1.5G daily this worked well until the day of the scope.
The scope indicated diverticulosis as well as UC ,biopsies were taken by the endoscopist and although there were no nasties there was mild inflammation in left colon,no erosions and no luminal bleeding.
Since this happened 5 days ago I’ve been in constant pain with stomach cramps and continually emptying out , well back to 5 times and also night visits.
My IBD nurse tells me it could be caused through the sigmoidoscopy ( the after effects of Entonox), come on 5 days seems along time to me. She prescribed buscapan cramps and told me this alieviate the pain and settle it down, but then she said if after a week it hadn’t she would prescribe some budenfak foam enemas which would.
I have a doctors appointment for the 22nd June when I should get the biopsy results . I’m not sure now whether my current problems are due to UC or diverticular disease.
Has anyone had this sort of situation happen to them in the past, any replies could be very helpful to me.
Thankyou Lynda x
