Interesting that it worked without having to retain it. I just leave it in there. I use only one to two syringes worth; so it's not difficult. It usually slows down my having to go to the bathroom too.
Oh, yes. I was able to do one treatment while visiting my daughter. I pooed about
24 hours afterward. My poo was better than it's been since having to be on the antibiotics, but it wasn't nearly as good as the last time I did fecal transplantation. I was able to do three treatments that time. It still might improve over the next few days though.
Colitis is in remission. No longer get IBS.
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 & supplements, Lexapro (for stress).
