My g.i. doctor gave me the diagnosis of possible ulcerative colitis, and is going to start me on a new medication. My father had the dx of ulcerative colitis. That would explain the stomach upset, and copious diarrhea that I have been experiencing. Including this new medication, I will have been prescribed 18 medications, total that I take on a daily basis, not including the over the counter medications that I have to take. More later. Going back to bed.
