Thanks, I really feel I am doing pretty well.
Surprisingly, I find if I eat a bit of fiber (1/4c Grape Nuts) and take Gas-X and a probiotic daily, that my BMs are getting more/more formed with less looseness. So I think I'm doing pretty well, having had that damaged portion removed...but I am also having to re-learn what my body-signals are. I don't have the 'warning gurgles', can't (won't still skeered) trust a fart most days and when I get the urge, I still gotta get to the toilet pretty quickly. However, with the BMs being more formed, I can usually eliminate everything in that one sitting, instead of multiple sittings over a period of 90min.
Its just, different.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry.
I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returning after resuming 6MP.
