Fecal transplantation worked for me too! It didn't cure me. But it certainly has made a huge difference in my condition.
Fecal transplantation put me in remission when I was prednisone dependent. Plus, it gave me normal poos, maybe even better than normal, considering my age. However, I had to take antibiotics again, and again, and again for a bladder infection, and I got another flare as result. Probiotics and a change of diet got that one, which wasn't nearly as severe, under control. And of course, after that I had to take antibiotics again, although only topical antibiotics, for things like an ear infection, peridontalitis, and acne. And guess what, I got another flare from the antibiotics, only this time it was very, very mild flare. The flare went away with Lialda and Canasa. I stopped using the Canasa, and I'm tapering off Lialda. I'm down to two a day.
I did fecal transplantation at home. I bought a syringe with a removable tip from a local drug store, and mixed the poo with luke warm water in a plastic container. I did not add salt. I then filled the syringe with it, and put it up my butt. I did this two times. Three treatments later, and I was in remission. Absolutely, no bleeding. I'm thinking about doing fecal transplantation again next time I visit my daughter, especially since I keep having to take antibiotics. I also plan be more active in taking preventive measures against getting infections. Currently, I'm taking cranberry supplements. They seem to be helping in preventing bladder infections.
Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.
What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No crystalline fructose, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, Vitamins, Lexapro (for stress).
