Hi...I meant actual food and not soft drinks or granola..especially for breakfast.
Maybe you could consider to change your diet a bit...that might help with some of the discomfort/urgency..etc, plus help your digestive tract get on with digestion in a more balanced sense.
Could you have an egg for breakfast and maybe rye toast or something thats not so "rough"?
Fibre is definitely important, but maybe you will have to consider a fibre supplement rather than whole grains.
You should eat your calories rather than drink them....can you drink tea or something that's not a constant sweet intake fluid-wise?
I'm not anti-sugar, but you're really not eating balanced from what I see.
Keep in mind that if you eat something now and you have the urge to use the bathroom...it's from what you ate long ago..not that instant.
You still need rectal meds....it's good you know what's causing the sensation, but you have to get the inflammation down and controlled.
Remember that UC starts at the rectum....if you only take an oral med...it won't treat the rectum.
When do you get the results of your biopsies?
Yeah, kind of lots of stuff....but not really. Do you mean the meds or the supplements?
I suggest you eat more food that will give you more fuel for the day. More protein...the kind you actually eat, and once you get the inflammation under control, your energy level will increase.
How are you sleeping?
Oh, did I mention you need rectal meds? Maybe make the appointment with the doc and not wait for the 3 month mark.
