Discomfort associated with the digestive tract can affect your life in a negative way, preventing you from participating in activities that you should enjoy. Turn to East Cooper Colorectal Surgery to diagnose and treat ulcerative colitis in Mount Pleasant.
More than one million people in the United States suffer from ulcerative colitis. This form of inflammatory bowel disease is characterized by inflammation and ulcers in the large intestine, including the colon and rectum. It only permeates the innermost lining of the large intestine, but the damage is continuous as opposed to being patchy.
Symptoms of this condition include chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, unintended weight loss, and unexplained fatigue. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we encourage you to reach out to us so we can diagnose the issue and provide the necessary treatment.
