From Crohns to UC??

Hello all.
This is my first post. I’ve had a rough month. Long story short I was diagnosed with Crohn’s when I was 14. Most of my issues have always been in my large intestine...mainly my anal rectal region.
So I had my first dr appt today with a new dr after being in the hospital last week. My rectum is in bad shape. So now they want to start me on Humara. I’ve never had to do any meds that weren’t oral. Also the dr says he thinks I was miss diagnosed and that he believes I have ulcerative colitis. He began to ask about joint pain and I swear I never noticed that my hips hurt all the damn time.
Also my rectum hurts so bad I wish I just never had to have a bm ever again. In the hospital I was told that if it’s not followed up with correctly, the next step will be surgery. I just started rowasa and I hope it helps.
Has anyone been here? Will the Rowasa help because they said I barely have tissue in my rectum.... sorry about the rant. I’m stressed 😔

Hi there and welcome to the forum. Your new doctor has a another impression on your disease but he saw your insides only once. With time, he will be able to have a clearer picture and opinion. CD and UC can sometimes be hard to diagnosed precisely. I have been such a case. I exhibit features of both CD and UC since 17 years!
Are you feeling any better?
