Fruitgirl, I'm fading fast and my colon is burning. I'm excremating a bit more, relative to the little I'm eating, and it's not easy to keep up with my fluids. I'm losing weight too.
I see the enemas working though and I see a lifetime commitment there-- no problem. But higher up is the problem now.
The rectum is still going to put out what it's given, whether it's inflamed or not. There's no pain or blood at the moment. Just the colon hurts and I feel weak from diarrhea.
