I am glad that you had your blood count checked to see if you were
anemic. You state that you have been diagnosed with ulcerative
colitis and you should be on some medication to main tain remission.
I hope that you are not on cortisone . It should be some other drugs
or 6-MP (Azathiprine) etc. The reason I mention the
cortisone is , it can have lot of side effects including elevating your
blood sugar, making your bone brittle causing fractures, cause cataract
and kidney problems. Can also cause muscle weakness
from loss of
potassium. I want you to get a blood test
, a complete metabolic panel
of tests that include electrolytes, kidney tests and liver tests.
You mention that you had gallstone pancreatitis
. After the pancreas
inflammation subsides, you should have your gallbladder
This can now be done safely through laparoscope and recovery is fast
and usually, same day surgery and home.
I wish you well.
