Wanting to Connect with others with new diagnosis of UC

Posted by reneegib @reneegib, Jan 19, 2016

New here- not sure where to start. Just [finally!] diagnosed with UC. My doc at Gastro Health has been incredibly informative and patient with me– I am the type of person who has a million questions! Was interested in finding other patients to talk about their experience, might help as I try to cope with this permanent challenge.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the National Crohn's/Ulcerative Colitis Support Group group.

Thanks for sharing your experience @reneegib! Check out the discussions in the UC/Crohn’s group here: http://thegiconnection.com/group/crohnsulcerative-colitis/

Great, I was just checking that group out. Thanks for your help!

Sounds like it took awhile to determine the UC diagnosis. Is your UC stable or are you starting on a medicine?

Hi! Who is your Gastro Health physician?

Hi @maril– Dr. Felder, he has been fantastic!

Glad to hear it; it really helps when you have confidence and a connection with your doctor. Will you need to start medication?
