Hi Piper-chris, It is strange what it does to him. He had a huge flare last Sept. and that is when his other doctor put him on 6MP at 150mg. PLUS he told him to cut back on the Asacol and take only 4 of them every OTHER day. But, when he cut back, he started to feel a tad of pain in the rectal area and knew what that meant, so he went back on the 6 asacol a day. He has about
6 BM's in the morning before he leaves for work, so he gets up around 6:30 to prepare.
The first couple are kinda formed, then the next couple are looser, then the last couple are mucousy, with sometime tiny traces of blood.
Sometime he gets cramps in his belly, especially if he eats pizza or spagetti or milk products. Now, I don't follow him in the bathroom,
but I do pump him for info, so I know what is going on. Leave it to a mom to be nosy huh? He hasn't had a major flare with the 6MP but I wouldn't say he is in a good remission.

Eats mostly bland food...occasional vitamins
