I've been in remission now for 9 months. A lot of blood work done in that time but inflammation markers have remained normal.
I've suffered a lot with IBS and GERD during that time. I just discovered it is due to being intolerant to Asacol.
So I've elimianted Asacol and I've tripled my probiotic dosage. I have 1BM a day - completely normal. It seems I can eat and drink anything I want and my bowel handles it.
I'm wondering now should I go tell my doctor I'm off Asacol and request some other mainteance med? I know this is probably the right thing to do but for the first time in 4 years I have no IBS nor IBD symptoms. Should I risk upseting my digestive system again with another daily dosage of 5ASA meds or sit back, smell the roses and trust in my probiotic treatment.
All thoughts gladly considered
