You all who have been nice to help me and are interested in my progress. I was doing so well (still am in some ways) with the Colazal (reduced doseage to 1X3 because of side effects - last week) Added Rowasa enemas about 9 days ago. I had to call for refill of enema on Friday and my pharmacy has to special order it so I can't get it until today. In the meantime, I had one left so used the Canasa for two night. Before that - no blood visible and formed stools - 1 or 2 in the morning - just right. I have been "trying" to eat low fat (I don't process fat well) and blank - no fiber much.
I had company over the weekend - all went well - UNTIL we went out to eat. I have 1/2 baked potato with nothing on it, little mac salad and dry bread, then broiled seafood - variety which I ask to be cooked with tiny butter and they did. I left a two shimp and 1/3 haddock fish. Anyway, that was it. about 20 min. later I got ver sick, pain around me right under my breasts - like gas and then diarrhea. I went about 6 times and took Imodium, pepto bismall and gasX (my doc says it is ok). Nausea came and went all night - cramping the same.
Now this is how I used to get sick before all these pills and enemas except I did not see any blood. I feel, weak, dizzy a little and tired today (well, not much sleep). No BM today but then the two Imodium will do that for maybe a day.
Am I back to square one - darn - or just should I avoid seafood and going out to dinner.
YUCK - I truly hate this UC and admire all those of you who have had it for years - not like me!!
