    It is common for patients to be in denial. And the symptoms you have may change as different organs are affected by CF at different times. CF affects all the mucus glands, pancreas, sweat, intestines and even the colon. Ulcers develop from stress and cortisone levels go up during stress. Steroids commonly cause ulcers….Always listen to your body…it knows what is going on. Dont be afraid to discuss all your concerns with you CF. physicians.

    • Thank you for this insight and support! I have definitely had ulcers over the years (one time, over 6 at once!) and all sorts of issues that I didn’t think “came with CF.” Currently, it’s actually my bone health and spine that are impacting me the most. It makes sense with all the coughing and degeneration, but in my mind… It seems so disconnected, you know? I wish we talked about all of these facets more as a community but… well, I guess that’s what’s amazing about this forum and why I need it. (And replies like yours!)
