I only take Asacol as my maintenance med. I am having a test soon called a CT Enterography and if it shows any inflammation then we are discussing adding 6mp. I am hoping I can stay on just the Asacol, because it works well for me.
Maintenance meds are important, but also modifying our diet is important too. Since my resections I now stay on a low residue diet all the time. It took time to figure out what works best for me and this diet seems to work for me. If I were you I would also keep a food diary to record how different foods affect you and avoid the ones that cause problems. I think with the amount of BM's you are having each day, you might be able to modify your diet some to reduce the gas and multiple bm's you are having. Good luck!
