Will definately ask the doc next week about
antispasmotic meds. I tried the imodium today. helped alot. still unsure about
safety of it. worried it might prolong this flare ( my first bout with this disease ). Am to go hunting tomorrow, definately going to try it again. And then to go Xmas shoppin on sunday. Am home for evening now. took imodium at noon. Figure I won't take anymore till before I go huntin in morning. Give myself tonight to be "normal". ALthough this isn't normal. LOL. I have a F-150. Thats the reason I am unsure about
the porta pot idea. no where to put it. No way to use it. truck has bucket seats. Plus kinda worried about
the smell in a cab that small and cloth interior. Have had to "hit the back roads" a time or two, but am always worried about
gettin caught. Embarrasing and hard to explain.
ANy suggestions on antispaz meds? I think the doc tried me on these very early on when he thought it was spastic colon. It was a med called pamine forte or some such. Didn't work, but thats all he had me on. might help now with the balsalazide, pred, ad others. I still have about
a half a month of the canasa supps, since they weren't workin he moved me to the rowesas. I honestly feel whats helped most is the Gluten free diet. I know diets are diff for everyone, but this one seems to work for me. I still have ALONG way to go to get back to normal, if there is such a thing anymore. BUt I can at least leave the house again so....
ANd this site helps alot. Nice to have people to talk to who understand and have opinions and experiences.
