The nightly enemas seem to be working, Quincy. Rectal pain or cramping alleviated. But gas and urgency still there. I think urgency is here to stay!
I was blaming some of this on the probiotic Mutaflor. Think I will pick up again with it tomorrow. Felt it was causing too much gas, but now unsure.
Anyway, doing the nightly enemas for the time being, maybe a week straight. And I'll take it from there.
Thanks, Quincy, for pushing enemas. They are healing.
