Hi, u said u were dx;d with this, but were u treated?
Patients with mild to moderate ischemic colitis are usually treated with IV fluids, analgesia, and bowel rest (that is, no food or water by mouth) until the symptoms resolve.....
I have not gotten any treatments of any kind yet. This is my second episode of it. They thought it was possibly a one time thing but it wasn't. Because my test are coming back fine they are possibly sending me to the Mayo Clinic for in depth testing since it is a reoccuring problem. My episodes were nearly a year apart.
Hi I hate to hear what you are going through especially at such a young age.I myself will turn 32 this year and I am facing they same delima with my medical bills, I have had 2 polips removed at 29, which stoped the bleeding but not the cramps or the frequency, I had another colonoscopy in Dec. and was told I had Undeterminded Colitis and refered to a specialist. Had another colonoscopy in Apr and now being told I have Ischemic Colitis, and getting an MRA done next. So we'll see what that turns out. I guess why I shared that with you is just don't get down, there are others out here that share in your pain. I will tell you, I don't smoke,drink, or do drugs except the many I have been perscribed. To be fare though my Dr. did say I was rare not only do I have the gut problems but I have kidneys stones, Barretts Esophagus, low Testosterone, and high triglycerides. Go figure a list that seems to get longer not shorter. I hope you get well soon. If I find anything out I will write you again. Good luck and God bless.
Hi...may I ask if u were having unusual amount of stress b4 each episode?
I am wondering if u may have more of a stress issue, and not colitis....since it was a yr apart????and not showing on the tests done so far.
Just a thought.
