Hello everyone,

I'm so glad I found this forum. I was diagnosed with UC in april this year after suffering with the disease for the last 7 years and being fobbed off by gps with them saying it was IBS.

I am inbetween Flare ups at the moment. So happy to have people to talk to on here though!

Welcome to the forum, both of you!

This is a great placed indeed! Rascalcat, I was also fobbed off as IBS for about 18 years before getting my diagnosis. Two years after that, my colon is gone. It's frustrating, to say the least!

Meander around... there is a ton of good information here.

7 years is a long time to be suffering from an incorrect diagnosis. Are you on medication now? Is it helping (I hope so)?
