Thanks for the replies. As to the advice of the ER doc I have pretty much been on clear liquids since Friday. I am starving...I ate a few noodles in my soup today instead of just the broth and had a few bites of mashed potatoes. Trying to eat things that will be soft.
As an update...I had a BM at about 10 this morning and then not again until 7 or so tonight. Haven't had too much food so it's just little pieces, but the blood is still only when I wipe. but it takes me 3, 4, 5 wipes to clean up. When I went to just urinate a little while ago, I felt no urge to pass gas or anything and when I did a pat down, there was no blood. YIPPEE! I'm hoping it's all getting under control.
Gachrons...I will get the cream tomorrow hopefully and try it out. It can't really hurt I'm sure...other than maybe some stinging with all of my irritated skin.
