i know i have been MIA for awhile, but it is nice to be back! i do have a question, though, i am pretty worried. my colitis seemed to be doing okay for awhile (quitting drinking and being 5 months sober helps!) but now something strange is happening. I feel like I am eating more than ever--I have always had a fast metabolism, but I am eating pretty decent sized meals (for a small person) every two or three hours. i haven't changed my diet except to cut out splenda and soda (i can't imagine that would be bad). anyway, every time i eat i have to go to the bathroom soon after. i know we are all used to this, but my stools are large every time and, for the most part, formed. also, i can see food particles much more prominently than usual--sometimes it seems like that is all my stool is comprised of! i am eating more than ever, but i think i am losing weight--in any case definitely not gaining. any ideas? i do have a stool sample at the lab, but i won't get that back for a few weeks.
thanks for any help and good to be back!
