Hope it's okay for a female to pop in here, two suggestions:
Someone on the UC forum here suggested I try this probiotic and I swear by it - Renew Life, Ultimate Flora, either the 80 Billion Colon one (aqua box) or the 50 Billion Critical Care one (blue box). You find these at a health food store, in the chilled section near yogurt, oils, etc. BTW, Walgreens sells these probiotics but I would not recommend buying them there, why? Because Walgreens refuses to keep them in a fridge behind the counter, if they are stored at room temp, they lose their effectiveness. Google it, you'll see lots of links for the ones I suggested above.
Second suggestion may seem odd to men but here goes. Years ago on a colon cancer forum I read about
an ultra thin pad that MEN and women were wearing, to keep their garments clean if they had a minor accident while rushing or waiting for a bathroom stall to
open up. Yes, men were wearing them! You find these in the feminine aisle, Stayfree, Ultra Thin Overnight Pads (black bag with purple logo/lettering). I'm long past the actual need for their purpose but they have SAVED me countless times in dire situations and are much better than wearing depends. What's so useful about
this pad is they have wings so they fan out wide where you need to secure them to your underwear and then they are extra-long and cover the rear area, where WE all seem to need coverage the most.
Good luck to you!
