How about an into section for new members?

Post by suebell » Fri Aug 21, 2009 1:17 pm

Hi

Would it be possible to have a section in colitis topics where new members can introduce themselves and maybe get a few hellos back from fellow members?

Just a thought.

Yeah, when people join it's so nice to hear a hello, and I know how you feel and sometimes posts are missed cos it's a busy site.

Anyway, welcome.

Cheers

Suebell

Hi everone,
I was diagnosed in July 09 with U.C. as well as Diverticular Disease. I am still suffering the usual horrible symptoms,even though the DR. at the hospital upped my medication (Asacol) to 2x800mg.morning & 2x800mg.night.I am very careful what I eat but still suffer terrible diarrhoea,tiredness etc.Mentioned to my GP. about having a Food Intolerance Test but would have to go private as this can"t be done on N.H.S. The cost being £300. not a problem money wise but I was wondering if anyone else had been down this road ?.Would be very grateful for any feedback on this.
Thanks. Elaine 1954

I agree - an Introduction section would be good! Would save people plastering their Intro's all over the place (i.e. some people's first post/intro may be in the Diet section and someone else's may be in the Medication section)

I know I'm just a newbie on the forum so don't wish to speak out of place - but this thread was started in August. Shouldn't take too long to set up should it?

I'll be saving my introduction until there's an Introductions section on the forum :na:


Meds; [asacol]: Doesn't work (stopped) [azathioprine]: Doesn't work (stopped) [prednisolone]: Used to work [infliximab]: Doesn't work (stopped) [methotrexate]: Doesn't work (stopped)
Foods; Pomegranate juice: Was helping.....

Ultimately we all realise that our health is our most important asset.

The admins appear to be a bit dead, so maybe we should create an official Introduction / Going Away thread. :wink:

Hi All
Iwas diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis Jan 09 and have still not found a way to try and control this! I cant bear the fact that i am on daily medication for it but this still does not control the symptoms. Have considered paying privately jsut to get a second opinion-have any of you tried this avenue? Any sugestions would be greatly appreciated!
Regards

Hi,

Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, but you're in the right place for sympathy... :party: what medication are you currently on?
