I was diagnosed with onset of Crohn's in 2008 I also have diverticula. This was after many years of intestinal discomfort. Any stress, nervousness or upset in my life and I'm heading straight for the loo.
I am taking Pentasa 500mg's increased from 4 a day to 6 when I remember. My consultant suggested this when I was there in April. I was complaining of bloatedness, slow transit but with spluttery poo 2-3 times a day with a rush to the toilet in the morning. I'm thinking diarrhoea but I don't seem to evacuate fully and still look like a butterbean, side on. Whenever I eat I feel like I am just topping up the congestion in my intestine. He said to start taking senekot constipation tablets every night and mentioned my diverticula. The first month was fine and my morning poo wasn't so spluttery and seemed like a lot, not solid, but a reasonable mass
I now feel that the laxatives aren't working so well and I look about
6 months pregnant
I took Probio 7 in April after taking antibiotics. I have started another month on them to see if it helps. I am vegetarian and the doc has said to eat what I would normally eat.
I'm not sure if recently I have overeaten and now I'm cutting back to see if my abdomen might shrink a bit. I'm continuing with the laxatives and I see the doc again in September.
I'm really fed up and was wondering what any of you kind people have to say about
good poo bad poo and any other advice?
