What No Sniper or VV yet! OK you got me, I'll get started:
Here I sit all broken heartedCame to read, but then I fartedDidn't need to check the rollBut now I'm stuck here in this hole
Here I sit all broken heartedCame to read, but then I fartedDidn't have those extra tidiesGoing home to wear my nighties
Warning! Now I get serious and gross... Yes I think you can have D and C at the same time. One day I was cramping all day and must have been in the small room 8-10 times with the last 4 being watery D, then went home and ate a banana and took 600mg of Mag with a quart of water, and in a few hours had watery D followed by straining dry beginning, finishing up with a huge trophy. The bad cramping stopped 15 minutes later. I think my body was dumping in water trying to work, but didn't have the bulk to keep things going. I wasn't having the banana with out the Mag and extra water to keep things going. If I remember right I had not eaten for about 24 hours due to nausea and cramping.
been through exactly what you describe...it has been that way on and off for years....sometimes the pellets without pain just pressure and other times I wanted to cut my own stomach out.
Sometimes the pellets would have some blood or clots attached.....the mucus I am told ...while not a good thing, is natuyral given the disease and the obvious problems I am having. the colon is producing it in large quantities as a protection to the attack being made on the walls of the colon by the disease....much like the sinuses draining to rid itself of irritants or infection.
The only relief in years for me was after my recent resection and then the use of Canasa.
Hope things get better.
As for the Encyclopedia...I would not hold out much hope. i tried it once and the publisher wrote back that writing stank....it was all a bunch of sh__......and that he would even wipe his bottom with the paper it was written on. Possibly the scratch and sniff idea was a bit over the top.
