I know as a mother, we worry about our children all the time. But you have to remember that bleeding is par for the course with this disease. Yes it's disconcerting to know that your daughter is bleeding, but it seems that she is in good hands - though it confuses me as to why your daughter is (was?) on so many 5-ASA's. Unless she is bleeding profusely, then there is no need to worry excessively. Sure we must always be leary of our bleeding because it can open the door to other problems, but as long as it's being addressed then it's more of a watchful waiting game.

As for yogurt - I am lactose intolerant but I do fine with yogurt. It seems to have different cultures in it then other dairy products like milk. Milk and ice cream just kills me! I also take a probiotic daily now and it seems to really help with some of the wayward symptoms like gut roiling (I call it the liquid gut feeling) and pain. I recently had a procedure in which I had to take antibiotics, those antibiotics caused me to have a yeast infection. But now that I'm on a probiotic, I am doing fine with the antibiotic I'm on now. Just remember to tell your daughter that if she is taking the antibiotic that she has to stagger her yogurt/probiotic intake.
