Seems we all have different symptoms at different stages. I went from several bloody D bm's (with urgency and cramping) a day to 1 to 3 solid formed bm's, little bloody mucous in at least one - something like Gigi - with aching bottom and thighs. Also, gas and slight cramping.
I found out that when I was out of Align probiotic and took the Digestive Advantage the doc gave me samples I did WORSE! Align has really made my bm's solid, formed and reasonable to deal with. Doc appointment on Wednesday if we don't have a storm. Proctofoam is just keeping the UC where it is - would be nice to get rid of more symptoms especially the blood.
