Before my surgery - all I could tolerate was:
-home made chicken soup (completely home made - so artificial stocks, etc)
No chemicals AT ALL. No food colouring, no nonsense. Just good old fashioned food. Got me through. Good luck Christine.
Diag proctitis 97 - major flare and extension to left sided colitis Aug 2006 - present.
I bled every day from Aug 2006 (I quit smoking in June 2006) to Jan 2010.
Imuran (Azathioprine) game me liver damage. LDN no luck. Asacol and mesalazine enemas - seemed to make worse. Lots of Prednisone :( No luck on drugs!
JPouch, total colectomy and ileostomy (part 1) completed Jan 2010 :)
Takedown (part 2) April 15 2010.
UC no more!!!
