Katie....just eat! small meals more often during the day. Start the Colazal and just use the Rowasa at night after a quick taper of the morning Rowasa.
meat takes longer to digest...so....not a big deal...that's good. You need fuel.
Carrots will look that way because you don't fully digest the type of fibre anyway.. The fact that you don't have much formed stool just allows you to see the carrots.
Have an egg in the morning for sure....unless you're allergic to them. Good protein, good vitamins and minerals.
Don't have lots of milk. Most of us are lactose intolerant and it'll just cause you more discomfort.
Eat foods that'll give you the best bang for the buck so to say. Protein is important for healing. Meats are the best source for that. Have vegetables as well cooked (steamed) as possible to give you the least amount of discomfort.
You can consider to take a digestive enzyme for meats. Bromelain is a good one.
I still think you should stop the fish oil for a while.....
Oh, have a treat a day....so that you're not feeling deprived. Don't do artificial sweeteners for sure.
when will you be talking to your doctor next to enquire about
