Topic - climbing and ulcerative colitis

treerik - on 28 Jun 2014

Hey Everyone,

just wondered if anyone here suffers from ulcerative colitis/crohns, or any other long term health condition? and how its affected your climbing/training/life etc?

i was finally diagnosed with full reach UC in jan this year after a week in hospital full of unpleasent tests and after 18 months of feeling like absolute hell everyday.. climbing of any kind was an absolute no go as it got to the point i couldnt even stand up let alone do anything physical. :(

i got back to the wall for the first last week after what feels like FOREVER and maaan was it good to get back!

it feels like a very lonely place to be as i know of no other climbers with anything similar and its difficult to explain how it all feels to my friend and family etc who dont climb and dont seem to 'get it'!

any thoughts, much appreciated :)

Rik
