I have a stricture in my sigmoid colon and was put on a low fibre diet at the time they found it. I have a few bowel movements a day but usually only a little bit at a time and originally they were narrower. I think the prednisone may have helped that but it wasn't doing enough as far as the inflammation goes so stopped taking it. Am going to try methotrexate before possibly surgery. Seeing a Crohn's specialist and he also said "low" fibre diet. I get a 'feeling' on the left side of the abdomen at times but no other symptoms so the decision to take any medication or have surgery has not been an easy one.
The only thing that my daughter has found to help her is stool softeners and Kristolose togather. One doesn't work without the other for her.
