Aw that's too bad jt. I was wondering how you were doing. Yeah I hate it when things seem to going very well and then you have a set back like this.
I had my own set back last weekend, rectal spasms and the constipated feeling returned. Not quite C but my insides are swollen, irritated and then I have the painful spasms. That leave you cold and somewhat nauseous afterwards. I used to get into this stage more often in the past now not so much. So when it hits, I know what is coming - a 24+ hour time period of feeling really sick. This time 36 hours. And it seems like all I can do it ride it out.
At least my insides feel more normal now or whatever the heck normal is for my gut now (multiple trips to the john!).
One thing I did recently that seems to have a positive effect on my stool - I'm back to taking my daily vitamins along with fish oil pills. No mess, no cramping, no pain, just easy bm's. Each time. You could always consider fish oil pills. And ironically I started taking them again because my skin is so dry! LOL
