For the last 2 days my colon is not liking me.Could it be that I ran out of my probiotics? Or do you think eating pistachio nuts and prunes could do it. Went to the bathroom about 6 times today and yesterday. Had to take dicyclomine, the cramps were bad.Now my left side is very sore. Going to pick up probiotics tonight.
Still using canasa in the AM and Rowasa generic  at night. No blood but lots of urgency! CRAP!!!!!!! confused Anything else to calm my colon down???

We are all different, with that said, If I were to eat (any) whole nuts, or (any) dried fruit, I would be setting up camp in the bathroom for sure-

Dried fruit is one thing, but prunes....did you eat more than a couple? There's a reason people use prune juice to cure constipation.

Kazbern, only ate 2. Two too many. I like them. I guess it was stupid on my part. I know people use them or constipation. Too late now. Nuts wasn't a good idea too!

If it had been me the combination of no probiotics mixed with nuts and prunes would have done me in. I wouldn't do that again if I were you, not even if you were in complete remission.

Didn't do anything: Prescription - Glycopyrrolate; Natural - enteric peppermint oil, Boswellia, Pepto Bismol, Omega 3 fish oil, Beano, Lactaid

Discontinued: Slippery Elm - meds were just passing through, Immodium - making me feel constantly constipated in beginning and now have solid BMs

I like it. Ran out obout a week ago. Should have bought more right away. Was stupid on my part. Was using the 80 billion. They only had the 50 billion at the store I went to. Hope it works as good. I spend so much money on all the drugs and supplements. Just crazy!!!!

On a not so funny note. Because of my UC ,I don't do 8AM"s anymore. Not sure if I'm going to make the appointment. If I stress about time it screws my UC really bad. I"m glad they are understanding at work. My privite practice I have no problem with.

The Probiotics I'm taking are pretty good Chrissy. I have problems with the fiber. I have been doing better since the Humira. Nothing is perfect!!!! I hope I never have to take pred again.

Chrissy...you don't know what the Lialda can do or if it was doing anything...the doc didn't have you on any rectal meds either.

Just saying...

q
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
Status: ...Asacol 3 @ 2x daily; Salofalk enema @ 3rd night (nightly/ flares, tapered/maintenance)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol 20mg as needed; Zantac 150mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma);Effexor XR 37.5 (depression)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care+Primadophilus Reuteri capsules @ bedtime)
~Metamucil capsules 6 twice daily with meals; Vitamin D 4500 IU
~URSO for PBC(or PSC?) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
