I just noticed (oblivious me), that there's an online chat feature here. Do you folks get together to chat sometimes? Is there a scheduled chat day/time? Just curious.

There is not a scheduled time, but if you would ever like to chat, just make a post in the forum that you are in chat, and if others want to chat they will join you.

When I was brand new to this group, we did chat from time to time. I was recovering from my colostomy sx and it helped me a great deal.

You can just post about it...ask about what day(s) work best for people and what time(s) work best as well for those interested and on the day(s) picked just put a reminder post about chat and the time it's going to be at.

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
