WHAT KINDS OF COLITIS ARE THERE?
Jump to this post
Hi, @quiteachiver75 – According to The National Institutes of Health, "The two types of microscopic colitis are collagenous colitis and lymphocytic colitis. Health care providers often use the term microscopic colitis to describe both types because their symptoms and treatments are the same."

Good question, @quiteachiver75. There appear to be a number of types of colitis. Here is a website where you can read about many of the types of colitis. Just click on the link, https://www.healthline.com/health/colitis#types-and-causes
Here is an article from Mayo Clinic's website that discusses ulcerative colitis, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ulcerative-colitis/symptoms-causes/syc-20353326
Did your doctor tell you what type of colitis you have? If not, it would be a good idea to call or send him a message through the patient portal to find out.
Have you been offered any suggestions by your doctor for treating your colitis?

Me and a close friend of mine was talking about all I have been going through I went to my doctor today and she told me that the Dr at the hospital did a CT scan on me in the hospital and seen that i still have my ovaries in which case is impossible since I had a total abdominal hysterectomy 4 years ago but my friend who is a nurse said that I could probably have ovarian remenat syndrome so I googled it and the symptoms are the same but I go Tuesday to my OB have any of y'all heard of this ovarian remenat syndrome

HI, @cherelle – if you scroll down this page under Causes, you will see a description of ovarian remnant syndrome https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/chronic-pelvic-pain/symptoms-causes/syc-20354368. Also, here is some information on it from the National Institutes of Health https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/diseases/7297/ovarian-remnant-syndrome.
Your OB appointment is tomorrow, correct? How are you feeling about it?

So Tuesday I went to talk with my ob she said the reason she kept my ovaries when she did my hysterectomy 4 years ago was because I asked to keep them because they were good I don't remember that but now I have to wait 5 more weeks after getting out of the hospital to do ultrasound but when I went to my regular Dr she is sending me to a urologist because she said something about my bladder but yesterday my ob called me I have a bad yeast infection with the ovarian cyst and also some vaginal dryness But the cyst is small but all this has me emotionally down I know this is a group about health issues can I get y'all input
Hi, @cherelle – just wanted to check in with you and see how the yeast infection is and also how you are doing emotionally?
The yeast infection is gone I go on 23rd to do the ultrasound to see what is going on with the ovarian cyst emotionally I am good
