You cut them...as in down 3 without tapering?
Are you completely off the rectal meds or tapered to maintenance.
Don't worry about
the food you ate...punishing yourself about
every thing you eat can lead you on the path of actually believing food causes a flare. Food intake can increase bms, depending on what and how much you eat.
So you have gas and extra mucus...it comes with IBS as well...no urgency is a good thing...
I would suggest you should be on a rectal med at least once a week anyway..tapered from your treatment nightly dosage.
If your symptoms continue, then it's probably because of the pred cessation and you've had mild inflammation anyway...especially with dropping the dosage of Colazal as well as not being on any rectal meds for maintenance.
You could add Metamucil smooth to your intake as a fibre supplement. Oh, not th sugar-free kind.
