WARNING: The following may gross you out.
So it's been almost 4-days now since I've been able to have a BM. The little bit I have expelled has been the size of a cut canned green bean. I just get big, bloody (and extremely smelly) mucous globs. My GI doc wants me to do some stool samples to see if my C-Diff has returned and to check for any other kind of bug that may have taken over. However, this is hard to do when you can't produce a BM to do the samples with.
So I was wondering if anybody has any ideas for me?

Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum.
