Thank you all for your responses! It's so nice to talk with and read about
other people who truly understand how I feel. Since Saturday (after the ER), I have been on 20mg of Prednisone, and my regular 2400mg of Asacol. I go to the Dr on Thursday and he'll hopefully ween me off the prednisone. I don't know if it's the meds, or the diet yet but, so far I have done really well eating white bread, frozen waffles, saltines, flat ginger ale, Juicy Juice (watered down), V8 Splash, Perdue breaded chicken strips baked in the oven, scrambled eggs, american cheese slices, and canned peaches (which I have loved since birth, so that's OK). I've been counting my fiber intake as well, and keeping under it 10g. So far, so good. No gas, bloating, or farts! YAY!
