Photos: Catarina in Portugal
Here I am to tell to the world my story. As I told you before, my name’s Catarina, I’m 24 years old and I’m portuguese. So, my story starts when i was 22 years old. I went to the hospital with lots of pain in my abdomen, diarhea with blod, lost of weight.. etc
My entire colon was damaged and i was proposal for surgery by my doctor. There was no way back – I tried lots os medication, prednisone, remicade, pentasa,
clisteres, etc.. and nothing seems to result. only high dosis of prednisone help my colitis to be calm, and not to bother me. but when i tried to get out of prednisone it starts all over again.. my body starts to claim its effects..
My first take down was on 23rd October. My surgery was made by laparoscopy..
my aspect when i was on prednisone:

Thanks to let me post my story! I will keep you in touch!
Kisses for all of you
