The Body Is Still Limp After A Week Of Ulcerative Colitis Treatment?
I want to ask, I have colitis chronis colon descending to the sigmoid area, it’s been a week after being treated but my body condition is still weak, is this condition normal? and is the intestine very bad?
Ulcerative colitis is inflammation of the large intestine that lasts a long time (chronic). This condition is thought to be due to autoimmunity which is also influenced by age and genetic or hereditary factors. The symptoms felt by the patient varied, from the patient barely feeling any abnormalities to bloody bowel movements accompanied by mucus, fever, fatigue, and abdominal pain.
The weakness that you experience can be caused by a lack of body fluids due to frequent bowel movements or anemia (lack of blood) due to bloody stools. For that, try to increase your nutritional intake and increase your consumption of water.
I cannot share the severity of your condition in this forum. This is because it requires direct examination as well as supporting examinations such as blood tests, stool examinations, colonscopy and CT scans.
