I have proctitis and have been having a flare since November. Im finally getting serious about fixing things. I am taking 9 colozal per day and using canasa. Along with the canasa usage and fixing my diet (eliminating sugar, chocolate, veggies, nuts, dairy with exception of kefir), things are getting better. Stools are not yet formed, but no blood, no mucus, no gas in the a.m., etc. My question(s) are:
1. How long should I stay on Canasa before I stop using it? I don't want to stop prematurely and have a relapse.
2. Does canasa prevent your stools from becoming formed? Will they stay runny when using canasa? (that is a reason I want to get off them if this is the case)
3. How long should I wait before I start introducing healthy things (fruits, veggies, etc.) back into my diet?
thanks for any input you may have....
