I am wondering the same, I see GI to go over my colonoscopy on Monday. I know I had scarring in my colon and my bm's are not what they used to be but no inflammation......I wonder will I ever go back to my old bm's?
Also, I think for me, the healing process was speeded up by me avoiding caffeine, such as coffee b/c, coffee gives me increased bm's and not by not having it, probably gave my colon more time between bm's to heal itself. Just a theory.
