When im flaring really bad on no medication i will be going diaherra water like 10-12 times a day. or majority is water with a few pieces. There was a good chunk of time when my food would just come out whole not digesting at all. When im on steriod i will have formed hard stools anywhere from 1-5 times a day. i know this is gross but they will be nice, soft looking formed and when you flush doesnt turn into water. When i go on low dosages of steriods my stools become very mushy like baby poop. or will try to form but when i flush the toliet turns into water. I notice also when im on low dosage of medication my stools like they have been touched my sandpaper. It is no longer nice and formed and smooth. Rough looking like i scraped it with something.
there have been times were so often when i get sick i get green diaherra. Ever happen to you? No one can figure that out. Havent had it in since sept so im not sure since i have been on medications. There are sometimes when my first stool will be formed and hard and then everyone after that will get softer and softer. REally surprised that if you have it in your colon you really need some pentasa or asacol. I need the capsules that break down so asacol wasnt working good for me but pentasa you should look into. i have the crohns in spots in my colon left, middle, and right side and rectum and end of small bowel ileum.
I am on humira every two weeks, pentasa 6 500mg pills, entocort 9mg,
Early on in my teen years I had chronic D - for ever it seemed ; even after dx I had D all the time until about 2 years ago it switched to chronic C - I would give anything sometimes for D instead !
Then ... just before I re-started Remicade in April/May of this year I started getting somewhat REGULAR ( or at least what I may think is regular ) days a week - I was OKAY with that too !
But it switched back to C again !
Then I had my second Cade and I had D for about 3 days afterwards ! ( huh ? is that right ? I thought it was supposed to stop that kind of stuff ? weird )
But, after the D passes I am back to C again !! Sometimes having to revert to the old Fleet friend ... or sitting in the potty for a really long time at work or I am hurting so bad !
But when it finally comes its formed for sure !
but wait ! sometimes it is formed ...then once I get off the pot I usually have to run back to it again ( oh that happens a lot ! ) and then its not formed ...its MUSH ... or even D ...
So, I can't possibly answer your question since I am totally confused myself !!
