Dear All, is anyone familiar with large and hard BMs? I've been having these for several months. Usually 1-2 BMs/ day. I very nearly clogged the seat today. However, I'm not constipated since I have BMs each day. I suppose it could be because of a still damaged colon, but I haven't had the conventional UC symptoms in a few months.
Best to you all!

have you considered adding fiber to your diet? you may also increase the amt of water you take in.

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED THE SCD DIET?  IT HAS PUT ME IN REMISSION AND I PLAN ON GETTING OFF THE ASACOL SOON TOO!

I try to drink at least 3-4 pints or water each day. I actually lowered my fiber intake by substituting rice for cereal. Perhaps I should go back. It's tough for me to exercise as by the time I done at work, I'm exhausted. Although I don't have UC 'symptoms' anymore, I've been exhausted all the time and have difficulty sleeping.
