Although I have been diagnosed for over a year now I still have no idea what to do during bad flare ups 🙁
When I have a flare up I seem to get abit blocked up and have a lot of frequent toilet trips with just blood and mucus. I have had a hospital visit Not long after being diagnosed due to abit of a blockage and had a bowel prep and iv steriods.
I’m having a flare up at the moment and have been put on another 8 week course of steroids as the other didn’t seem to work as it’s just got worse.
I spoke to my nurse before the weekend and she suggested laxatives over the weekend and failing that a hospital stay is Likely needed altho they have been avoiding this due to COVID. Basically I’m just a bit fed up and unsure when I should seek medical advice as times like tonight when I can’t phone my nurse but the bleeding is very heavy is it normal? Is it okay to wait till the next day? I just feel so un educated about it all still and never really get any answers when I ask.
