Well my bleeding has stopped and the spasms following my BM are almost completely gone now thanks to the cortifoam.
My question to you guys is are any of you or did any of you suffer with very large bowel movements? Some days I just fill the bowl (with mostly normal looking stool with some mushier stuff toward the end) and I'm beginning to think this is a big part of my weight loss or in other words malabsorbtion...yes I take a very good digestive enzyme etc and the excessive amount of stool most mornings seem to be the culprit. I have mentioned this to my GI doc and she doesn't seem to worry about it so much but I'm dropping weight AGAIN : ( I went to my regular doc yesterday and she ordered lots of other test to see if anything else might be the cause of my weight loss but I'm sure I've figured it out that it's caused by malabsorbtion/large BMs and my UC.
I'd appreciate any feedbak please.
