I know this is an individualistic disease. And I also realise everyones answer to this will vary. But what do each of you consider remission? Before I started to have problems. I was a once a morning guy... Got up, went downstairs, shaved, visted the throne, got a shower, brushed my teeth, and was out the door. If I hurried this could take less than 20 minutes. Is this to much to ever hope for again? I never had D or urgency in the afternoon. and even If I caught a bug ( which was rare ) I always had confidence that I could hold it. Now I have no confidence.
So what qualifies as remission for you all? what expectations should I have? Sorry to be the one to ask the hard question. LOL
