I think I'm in remission!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After the bout of food poisoning, things got "loose" again. Not so much that I felt nervous about being away from a bathroom because the urgency wasn't bad, but I was having diarrhea about 4-6 times a day. Anyway, I don't know if it was because I started eating avocadoes again, or because it just took that long for my colon to heal after the food poisoning (I'm convinced it takes our colons longer to "get over" something like that) but I've had 1-3 completley formed, completely non-urgent BMs since Thursday! It's silly how proud I feel!
I see my GI again on June 4th, but I'm considering trying to start tapering the Rowasa before my appointment. He's on vacation right now, so I can't call and get his opinion over the phone. Thoughts from those with experience would be greatly appreciated!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
