Ulcerative Colitis

I'm new here, and I'm waiting on a colonoscopy and endoscopy, the specialist is 90% sure it's ulcerative colitis, how does everyone cope with the reoccurant diahhrea?

I take tablets to stop it every couple of days once they've worn off I take more to stop it, I've been signed off work for 1 week but when I go back I'm unsure on how to cope. Can anyone recommend anything or a certain diet to stick to or foods to avoid? I would really appreciate any advic

Your work should be be supportive! Take each day as it comes and try not to worry and stress too much, it only makes it worse! Stay away from spicy and too much fibre until you know yourself what works for you

I was diagnosed 4 years ago with mild ulcerative colitis about a month ago I was diagnosed with severe pancolitis I am now on humira I did take bentyl which helped a lot with the pain and cramping and spasms I have completely changed my diet to low fodmap and that has helped I have eliminated dairy, rice, grains etc. lots of good stuff on Pinterest for low fodmap. I feel it has helped me a TON getting me to some remission! Unfortunately you will have to find your triggers but dairy is a big trigger for most!
