Re: First major flare for around 20 years

Sounds like a rough time for you at the moment -- and that getting into hospital is probably the best plan for you. None of us want to have to go to hospital, and I think it can be really easy to normalise severe symptoms once you've had them for more than a day. I know I've done this a lot in the p...

Re: Here we flare again!!

Hi Amy, Good on you for taking a new approach to managing your condition. You can do this! Speak to your IBD nurse (if you have one) or phone your consultant's secretary ASAP.
