@cazza87:  I’m sorry, I don’t have a lot to offer on the topic. But I do have a father with very advanced Chron’s disease (been on TPN for 2 years, had a transplant, rejection, and removal surgery all since nov ’12) so I’m pretty intimately familiar with some of the side effects and challenges of lving with UC. 

Relax! I know it’s so much easier said than done, but seriously. The people who love you love you with UC, so they will understand. Do what you can in the lead up, but don’t let yourself get too stressed. Enlist help when you need it before you even think you need it.

Re: the plane. Can you fly in early so you can recover in time? That might help. Are you ok to take some sleeping pills? That might help with the stress as well, not to mention that’s a really long flight so sleeping will be good and help the time pass. I really like melatonin because it’s a natural supplement.  

Good luck and congratulations! I hear SA is really beautiful!

Hi there, I am afraid I can’t be much help, but my Future Brother-In-Law has very bad UC, he is hospitalised regularly and at the moment is 6 foot 4 and only 8 and a half stone. Obviously the menu choices will affect him more than most, but with his and another guests UC, the grooms severe dairy allergy, the 5 vegetarians and one hindu, I think my work on the menu choices is cut out for me!! I hope your tummy behaves, SA is absolutely beautiful! Stress exacerbates pretty much any condition of the bowel, so just try to relax and enjoy yourself, and make sure you get there in time to have a rest before the big day! 🙂
