An update on my FT:
I originally planned on doing two over the weekend, but I really botched the first one. Let me tell you it's a lot more disgusting and nausea inducing when you actually do the whole thing than you initially imagine.
Anyway as a result I only got about
30ml (10% of the recommended dose) at most into me, if that, but the effects could be seen the same day. For the past month and a half I've been having nightly stomach cramps and urgency and the first night after the FT, they were completely gone. The day after my BM improved little by little each time I went. It was easier and more solid.
Now today, two days after the FT, it is morning, I haven't gotten up once at night due to pain or urgency, and had a really great BM. It was much smoother to pass and almost pure solid, not there yet, but considering I had bloody diarrhea consistently and guaranteed for the past 3 months, it felt great!
Now here's the best part... for the past 3 months I've had blood every single time, mostly 90 percent blood and 10 percent black on the TP and toilet bowl. This morning it was 100 percent brown! Not a drop of blood!
Since I put in me so little I doubt it will last long. But at worst, this is a very QUICK and very EFFECTIVE fix for UC, short term or not.
I will definitely be trying another FT soon to seal the deal.
edit: also worth mentioning, not only did I end up using only 30ml (10% of dose), I also only kept it in for 2-3 hours (didn't bother fighting the urge to go since I figured at that little amount there's no way it would help at all).
