For the last week or so I have been having the worst gas. I mean the smell is deadly. I went ahead and started Canasa today in case I was starting to get rectal inflammation. Any other suggestions for getting it under control? Thanks!!

Oh man! I'm with you. Just a week or two ago the toxic gas kicked in for me too. Totally new development in this fun saga. My doctor wants stool samples to test for infection, bacteria, etc. She also suggested maybe it was something I ate, but the gas has lasted for a couple of weeks, so I don't think that's it.

I guess I don't have any advice (other than maybe look at your diet), I just thought I'd let you know I'm enjoying the same issue.

I find that toxic smelling gas is indeed associated with flare-ups. This makes sense if a bacterial imbalance (- possible increase of sulfide producing becteria?!) is one of the disease triggers.
Have others noticed a relationship between toxic smelling gas production and disease activity??
