Ditto pb4....one who is flaring shouldn't expect to not be going. If I'm flaring, I will go in the morning, late afternoon and in the late evening or early morning...depending on if I'm up.
Use the Canasa in the morning as well....better yet, you should be on the retention enemas.
Whatever you do.....don't stop eating because food is what helps retain your strength while going through flares.
Don't make it all about
Don't take the Lonox often at all...it'll just imobilise your colon...if you need it once in a while, OK, but it's not going to help your flare.
An antispasmodic such as dicyclomine would be better.
you're flaring, plain and simple. It sucks for sure.
