It's now been 9 months since I was admitted to the hospital with severe Ulcerative Colitis and a completely inflamed stomach.
I have made NO progress since I left the hospital two weeks later, 40 pounds lighter. My weight goes to 170 lbs max, no matter how much I eat. For a Former Fat Boy that is mind blowing. I'm weak as fuck, have not touched a barbell ever since. I have no indications on foods that worsen my UC and foods that help, it seems so random.
I have read up so much about UC, Crohn's and inflammatory diseases in general but there is not one principle that has helped so far and so much of the literature contradicts each other.
I've always turned to T-Nation for cutting edge nutritional advice, I do not know what sources to trust otherwise. I feel my doctors are all incompetent, just trying to get me to take as many drugs as possible.
I guess my question is this... does anyone on here have any information that might help me cope with this? Anything at all? I'm at my wit's end... my libido is so pathetic Beyonce could give me a lap dance and I wouldn't get a hard on. I doubt there is a smidge of T left in my body.
