The 5ASA, yes make me nervous and jittery. You'll probably roll your eyes when I say this, but I started the sunflower seeds and spinach 3 days ago. The blood tapered, no blood today, yesterday, very, very, very little. My stools are bettered formed, but I'm going to still do the canasa. I hope it doesn't make me start to bleed. I feel so good throughout the day, but then in the afternoon I do go to the bathroom, lots of poo and urgently, however I'm able to go and get of the toilet, where before I would spend a hour in pain. There maybe something to the sunflower seeds being high in magnesium and cooper? I'm doing the canned spinach, I love spinach anyway, always have so it's not biggie to eat a can a day.
I will start the canasa.
First scope 7/05 should no UC, but I was bleeding with urgency. Sigmoid showed UC at rectum, 2nd colonoscopy & Endoscopy 7/27/07, Left sided colitis and near cecum (mild)
8/1/08 on sulfasalazine 2 2x's a day, canasa often.
