My weight has been fluctuating - One week it's 136 last week 132 this a.m. 144.  Now, I have begun to feel better, but I am not over eating by any means.  Would be afraid to over eat.  My bleeding is gone - still light mucus and tender lower tummy but feel much better.  Not quiet as fatigued as I was during the height of my flare.  Just wondered if anyone elses weight fluctuates.

Yes, mine does too. I don't know how I manage it but I will go to bed weighing 133 and when I wake up I am at 127. But I have always been that way even pre Uc days. I contribute it to water retention.

You will be less in the morning....weigh yourself morning and night and document (graph) to find your average weight. Women will fluctuate about 5 pounds throughout the day and start to gain a tad right after ovulation till after their period.

You'll be able to tell if you are actually gaining weight from the average weight and its consistency.

I go up and down 5 pounds daily.

Oh, did you get a new scale? Were you fully clothed compared to just skivvies and bellybutton lint removed? Before bm, after bm...lol! Makes a difference regarding consistency of times.


*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 4(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
