Thanks all for your sagely, experienced advice.
Red_34 - I'm a big veggie-vore, have lots of raw fruits and veggies every day. hmm...a food diary sounds like a practical way to go about
pinpointing what causes the gas.
Quincy - Not on any rectal meds, only on Asacol the past 6 months, since remission began and it seems to be doing a great job.
Old Hat - Man, its hard to think about
giving up raw fruits and veggies, they're a staple of my diet as I'm not into eating lots of starches and carbs, though the few servings I have daily are whole grains. It's gonna be a whole new mindset. You make it sound do-able though...thanks for the positivity!
