Thanks! I briefly looked at it. I have had IBS for about 30 years and know what to do - what to eat, etc. - just can't stick with it all the time. I always have diarrhea and have never been constipated. I do believe the probiotic Align has helped me the most.
As for UC - that is another story. Nothing I eat or don't seems to make any difference in bleeding, mucous, etc. - that is why I am going to the specialist.
Senior - New diagnosed with proctosigmoiditis - 6/2008 Tried, Colozal, steroid enemas, etc. - started working but severe side effects occurred. No mesalamines!!
Started on prednisone Feb.7, 2009 - tapering to 20 mg. - upped prenisone to 25mg. on my own (bleeding returned) - 6MP - 50 mg. 2/28/2009 - staying on 10 mg. prednisone also until visit with specialist.
