I still have issues with urgency and frequency which is why I know I'm still flaring...even though I have no blood and my stools are formed, when the urge hits, if I don't make it to the toilet it will be in my pants, I just cannot control/hold it and I don't have proctitis issues at the moment (infact I haven't had proctitis since I started with the probiotics) but maybe because I have issues with my anus due to the fact that I have perianal crohn's skin tags along with crohn's colitis....or it could be issues with my IBS I don't know, but I feel your frustration.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

I still have issues with urgency, although I have now gone from 5 seconds to 5 minutes. It takes time for the colon to heal.

angle, you stated you are not sleeping as well, is it due to increased stress? I always could feel a flare coming on when my life stresses increased as well.

I still have multiple BMs and some urgency in the morning, like I have to get up a couple hours early to empty my bowels. I don't have any blood and my stool is at least semi-formed. My GI says it's IBS.
