I know... nice topic first thing.
 
Anyone having these? Is this a UC/IBS thing? Is it normal?
 
Mine are disgusting, I know that they're not supposed to smell like roses but mine are "over the top".  I'm on Asacol, taking Metamucil capsules, and I know I'm not eating anything different than I ever have so not sure what is causing this. I have been screened for Celiac and it came back negative.

If I'm not mistaken, I made this exact post quite awhile back. So yes, it happened to me also.

I can usually predict when I am getting an infection due to the smell.  I had to tell my girlfriend if she ever sees me smelling my poop not to get alarmed.  I remember before I was diagnosed with UC that people in my office complained of the smell in the bathroom.  I am having an episode right now and they are red and runny and smell weird to my normal movements.

Sorry Joylu...I usually search for this stuff.

I was just disgusted this morning and thought I should post because it was "fresh" in my mind.

But they make me squeamish!!

I notice this as well. It literally "stinks". I'm also on Asacol and it's possible that it contributes? I'm not certain but I can't remember the smell being as bad as now (on Asacol). Really though, sometimes when a friend or someone else in public that I'm unfortunately near passes gas it smells just as bad if not worse!

I say you're flaring, and if you have the rectal meds try to start them again.

You could up the probiotics....

Yeah, flaring bms stink.

They have been like that for awhile, I was just particularly disgusted today by the "scent".

I am back on Cortifoam and as mentioned 6 x 800mg Asacol. For now they are keeping me on Cort because the stool samples came back negative, so they're thinking that I must have an issue with the Salofalk.

Up the probiotics? By how many?

Hi there..hope you're starting to feel a bit better. I'm still holding...nauseated a lot of the time..ugh! but sticking with the Salofalk nightly. Now I have a hemmie...my brain is permanently attached to my butt, and that's frustrating.

Regarding the probiotics...what are the directions of the one you got? I usually take mine at night 2 hours after my meds on an empty stomach. I take the max 3 or sometimes 4.

It's possible you have an issue with Salofalk, but you're still flaring, and it could have been coincidence. The only way you'll know is to try them again if you have any left.

The smelly poos...if it's like barn or ammonia or not like "pooP, that would be flaring I would think. If you have a lot of mucus, could be flaring with IBS....nothing like being obscure..lol! confused

Hope your weekend goes well....enjoy the weather. Please don't rain!!!!

    My probiotic says to take with food.  Yes, when flaring the bowel movements are really smelly.  That is why I thought I had cancer before being diagnosed.  Could it be the blood?  Probably just infection.

I notice with my experiances that just before and during my monthly periods my stools have a really bad potent sweet smell (just cuz it's sweet doesn't mean it smells good) but other than during my periods my gas is virtually odorless and same with my stools.

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

Glad to hear you're holding, though I'm sure you'd like to be better than that. Hemmies just add to the frustration don't they? Touch wood, I've been hemmie free for about 3 mos.

Well....still as smelly as ever. Barn or Ammonia, never though of that but yeh barn is probably a good description!

Don't know what is up with my bowels though? Urgency/panic to get to the washroom seems to have slowed down considerably. I only seem to go 2-3 times per day, generally all in the space of 1/2 hour. Still rather loose stools, though I started the Metamucil Smooth the other day. Seems to be a bit of a difference already, taking 1 tblsp right now...only because I forget. Is this termed "mild" flaring?

They are once a day Probiotics...nothing on there that says to take more than one.

I may sneak a Salofalk treatment in the mix to see what it does for me...I'll recognize the issue in a hurry.

Weekend was hockey filled, my son won the City Championships for his age group, so that was pretty cool! My middle son starts his quest for a City Championship tonight.

Snow is certainly disappearing in a hurry with this rain, hopefully we don't get it as bad as they are saying.

mine is bad too ...very smelly! especially the gas. When ever we plan for a movie - my concern is how will i control gas all through the movie :-( If i let it out in theater people will have a tough time. My poor hubby has got used to of it now. Funny part is, when i become little better and gas decreases for a couple of days - he says i think u r going into remission :-D

LOL saposs...interesting others' perspectives on how we're doing. Your husband at least hasn't had his nostril hairs burnt yet..haha.

Hope you continue to feel well. You could consider to use digestive enzymes ... that might help with the gas, although for me, sometimes it makes more gas..could be because I don't take them early enough when eating.

ZLSJ...congratulations regarding the hockey tournaments..you must be very proud of your sons and their teams.

I'd consider you mildly flaring and healing. You're not getting worse, and hopefully the rectal meds will do their thing. I think it's worth trying the Salofalk again....

The diarrhea could be the Asacol, stress, food, just mild inflammation, IBS or whatever.
Hard to determine sometimes/ But I do believe our minds rule a lot in some symptoms.

I'm the tortoise regarding healing this time around...still discomfort low in the rectum..could be the hemmies, however...but not when having bms so I'd still say it's wonky in there but vastly improved..lol!

Definitely too many milk products aren't in agreement with me and coffee quickens the activity, and I've cut down a tad. Mornings aren't my best (morning meaning when I get up, not time). Stress certainly is an aspect in my thinking process but that's me and my erratic schedule. I'm trying to keep things in perspective....it's all a process, not a decision per se to stop it forever.

I also worry it's liver related (and have to stick with only one part of the digestive tract, but if it continues, I'll talk with my doc again) , but bms are now normal...but I do have some urgency once the urge has started. It could be habit, however, and depending on what/ how much / how often I eat the day or so before, determines "quality" and amount and how many per day. Usually, it's one or two within an hour and then nothing till the next day.

I'll say I'm heading for normal soon...still sticking with the Salofalk and trying to remember to use the hemmie ointment.

Hope the Metamucil smooth works for you....it does mak passage "smooooooooooother"...lol!

Keep dry.....I don't like seeing little raindrops and snow on the week's forcast captions...lol!

Let me know regarding the Salofalk.

Thanks, we certainly are proud of them! Off to the next game in an hour or so.

Will keep you posted on the Salofalk.

I'm thinking/hoping the Metamucil bulks things up a bit more...I'm no longer squirt bum so feel better about that end of things.

You seem to be a very patient lady as far as the healing goes. I always want it fixed now! I guess you've been dealing with these issues much longer than I so you certainly have a better idea on how long things take to get better. Still don't know how you do it! I guess your liver issues will always be in the back of your mind because you have a known issue that can be somewhat related.

By the way, it is Symbicort that the doc prescribed for my cough. Jury is still out on whether it's working or not. Seems to be slightly better after 5 days of 2 x a day.

I'm beginning to wonder about me and milk, perhaps we don't agree.

You know, I've never really struggled that much with my BMs.  It was always the urgency to get to the bathroom like a mad man only to have little to no results (blood, mucus, etc.) that was the biggest frustration while in a flare.

I hear you on the weather captions! We're off to Transcona for our hockey so hopefully the freezing rain/snow holds off for a day or so.

Hi quincy,
Thanks, m doing better - will not say good :-(
Since i have started canasa i did become better in the beginning, but now i would say it's on & off - i keep getting flare ups now & then. Constipation makes my condition worse, i get a flare up the day i get constipation - i m taking digestive aid- Colon care formula these days - twice a day- it is helping a little. Also started probiotic today :-)

How r you doing, i hv been very busy lately so not able to write much these days but I try to read all new threads everyday even if i m not able to write :-)

saposs...I'm flaring mildly and am back to nightly enemas. Add hemmies, as you know, can be a pain. I'm pretty much in the normal range...must focus on the hemmies..external ones, but the feeling of them there is hard to ignore.

Flaring ups and downs for some is the norm and med maintenance helps a lot. I cannot remember if there's a reason you're not on oral 5ASA...maybe you should consider it, even though your UC isn't higher.
Again, is there a reason you cannot use the retention enemas? You might want to add that to your siggie so we don't keep asking you the same questions...but I'd probably ask anyway..lol!!
 
Remember, you can use the suppositories 2x daily or even 3x if needed.....it's still not in med value equal to the enemas...so, that's still an option.

I hope the probiotics and other supplements work for you...and that you improve steadily. Yes, it's slow...that sucks for sure.

ZLSJ......hey, I want everything fixed now as well, and I'm not that patient as I am just knowing that it takes time. I was in my doc's office a lot the first two years and I got a lot of "be patient" from him...I'm just passing it on..lol!
Besides, my butt rules, basically. If I hurry things, I'm back to nightly....I've tried many taper methods and I just continue to do what I need to. we're thankful for pharmacare and blue cross, that's for sure....ka ching!!!

Where do you get your meds from? We do Shopper's.....I realised it doesn't take as long to reach the deductible since this all started 20 years ago...haha.

Yes, my liver is in the back of my mind because I don't want to deal with it. I just take the meds and resume life as mine is. When I feel really crappy, however, I wonder. Nausea is what I hate, and the consistency of it lately has taken a front seat to concern. But, I must rememeber that low in the rectum inflammation, however slight for me, can cause nausea. That's the other reason I'm sticking with the enemas....until it's gone for a consistent amount of time.
Working on it.

Ah, Symbicort. It's got both extended reliever and steroid....I hope it helps you. But, welcome to the moist mouldy weather...I noticed my husband has that cough sound...I say nothing!!! I just hope he doesn't get a cold, or I'll be begging for him to try the singulair again...even a half daily. But, I have to let it go and deal if it happens.

regarding milk....we may have our limit and anything over it can cause symptoms. I also think some milk causes less problems, but hard to say if one's gut is inflamed.
There is Lactaid chewable pills you could try....or again other digestive enzymes that might help.

Yeah, it all gets too much sometimes...this for that, that for this...ugh...

Has the urgency improved? then something's working....

Wonder what the day will bring as far as precip.....Even Sylvia was very serious during the newscast...but she's been wrong (a lot) before. I know, not her fault.

hope the week fares better for you regarding the Salofalk.

Hey! my doc told me i have hemmies too :-D also regarding oral medication i have a meeting with her next month so i shall inquire the same. She said canasa will work fine. Retention enema - i have never used it & rather dnt know what it is !
Yes the canasa - even i was planning to use it more than once.. atleast when i flare up :-)
Last few months suddenly my body has given me a lot of problem - dx with hypothyroid (hashimotos -again immune problem) December last year - dnt know if they r both related with each other.
u take care & wish u stop getting ur flare ups :-)

Yes, don't know where I'd be without Pharmacare and Blue Cross as the bills come in, I can't begin to imagine paying full price for these drugs. I know many on the forum do.

I've been going to Safeway actually, there was a list sent out at my wife's office whereby I think they had the lowest prices...I do believe that Shoppers was one of the higher ones. I'll have to check on that. Though there is something to be said for convenience.

Funny, with my Health Anxiety raging I'm not getting that hung up about my UP as I was say a month ago. Don't get me wrong, it still bugs me, but it doesn't seem to be on the front burner so to speak. My back discomfort, headaches, cough seem to be ruling the world with me lately.

I'm mixed on the Symbicort having any effect so far. I think it has helped but ever so slightly. I was back at the walk in yesterday and let her know that I wasn't totally sold on it. We discussed my x-rays and she said they were clear as far as any other issues go. As you suggested, perhaps a visit with a specialist is due, she will not refer though as her office is far too busy to look after this for walk in patients. I have to go to my GP to get a referral....rats.

Milk is something worth trying to eliminate. My chiro guy for what it's worth, thinks that my coughing may be related to an allergy of some type. Don't now if coughing like I am is a symptom of a milk allergy; can't believe I haven't looked that one up yet!

I'd say urgency has improved...when I gotta go, I gotta go, but I no longer have to knock people out of my way when I feel it coming on... lol

What a horrible couple of days we've had weather-wise. I guess this is somewhat normal for us but it still sucks! Off to Saskatoon for a few days tomorrow.

How has your week been? Feeling any better? How's your hubby's jaw?

Hi saposs....the retention enemas are Rowasa (if you're in the US), Salofalk, Pentasa, Asacol brands (if you're not in the US).

I'm feeling much better UC-wise....will continue the enemas till the end of the month nightly then go to every second night for April. Wow, the year is passing by quickly.

Regarding immune problems...they like to come together, and one can definitely encourage the other to flare....sucks for sure.

Thanks for the well-wishes...take care.

ZLSJ...to me, if one cannot reach the deductible, then choose a very affordable place to go. One good thing with Shopper's , the points with Optimum are a bonus to purchase other stuff....
The only thing, there are many doing the refills and I have to stay on top of my requirements. I feel like a beotch at times, no, I'm not rude, but there are two assistants that should run the place and I enquire to them to get things clarified, etc. They're awesome, and I apologise for my frustrations.
We do reach the deductible, so reaching it sooner to not have to pay for a few months is a bonus....but when I'm doing well...it takes longer. But, I'd rather be feeling better..sigh...so the bonus of the end of march pharmacare offer is nice.

Interesting about your health issues, but I do the same for unsolved mysteries....once I know, my anxiety eases. You should get referred to someome..maybe an allergist would be the best to see. He/she would deal with all the lung/nose/cough..etc as well. At least your GP refers...with no griping, and that's a good thing. See, we use some doctors as well..lol!

Good thing the urgency has improved....yeah, you have more people to knock out of the way..lol! I guess the look in your eyes is a clue....MOOOOOOOOOOVE!!!! thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk...yeeeeee....slam....oooo...ooooooo....oooooo....ahhhhhh.

My husband's jaw is fine....using the guard nightly hath helped immenthly..lol!
I'm relieved to see him not in that pain/frustration.

Drive carefully on your trek eastward....I hear sunshine is in the forecast, however!

Have a good weekend,

My poo stopped having any odor after I did fecal transplantation.

Bad smelling poo can be due to bacteria overgrowth or a problem with malabsorption.
Joy - 47 yrs and counting
Colitis Dec 06 (also have IBS)
Currently in remission
Don't expect your doctor to cure your health problems. Your health is your responsibility.

Lexapro (for stress), Probiotics and Vitamins (a whole bunch of them)
Avoid HFCS, foods high in fructose, artificial sweeteners
When flaring: eat anti-inflammatory foods, avoid pro-inflammatory foods
Previous treatments: Fecal transplantation (worked), Prednisone (stopped working), Colazal (stopped working), Asacol (stopped working)
