Pisani Battles Back From Ulcerative Colitis

From Fernando Pisani at The Hockey News:

Hockey players often take their health for granted. That all changed for me in 2005 when I started feeling sick.

I knew something was wrong with me, but I was kind of embarrassed to see somebody about it. As time went on and I began to feel worse, I knew I needed to get well and had to see a doctor. I finally did and that’s when I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.

I was able to continue playing, but last July all the symptoms started coming back, only worse this time. I was going to the bathroom 20-30 times a day, losing a lot of blood and a lot of weight.
