Didnt want to post this last night, afraid to jinx anything.
Yesterday I decided to fill my tummy (scary thought considering I've only had urgent diarrhea for the last 6 months) and try adding psyllium husk powder to my life. I tried the powder once before but didnt eat much and it was rather uncomfortable. But since I had a full belly... I figured Might As Well!
I ate around 4pm. Also had some massive diarrhea the second I finished eating. And again i ate a little bit around 8pm. My stomach felt full, I had some energy but doing too much was uncomfortable.
And then right before i fell asleep... 1am... I jump up and head to the toilet. Some urgency. This had been quite a long time for me without a poop. and, boy.... i pooped my brains out. Felt like a normal diarrhea poop. But to my shock and amazement... as I stood up and my gaze fell to the contents of the toilet... I was greeted by some squiggly turds! I dropped to my knees and investigated. Poked a wad of tp at one of them... and it didnt fall apart... it just sorta wiggled and floated.
I squeeled with glee and took a picture. Lol!
and ran downstairs to tell my husband and our friends who were up late drinking and playing a video game.
I am going to continue to eat solid foods and add 1/2 teaspoon of the powder to them. Small meals though.
My diarrhea and pain are the last of my symptoms. And urgency... which has also gotten better. No more blood. My hemmies are better too! Except the fissure... which was healing fine but hurt a lot after my poop.
Pretty excited. But don't want to jinx it.
oh, and the reason I didnt state what ate is because its terribly embarrassing horrible "food" ....but its all my body seems to tolerate.
Hoping to eat some steamed veggies someday soon :) :)
