Feeling pretty good today and had no symptoms when waking up. I'm sure there will be symptoms again lingering around though.
A lesson I would add to this flare in terms of the transplants is to be quite generous with saline and to try to get the transplant to body temperature before administering it. This will help a lot in keeping it longer inside your colon. The thicker it is the more likely it seems that the colon will think that it needs to come out whereas if it's quite fluid then my colon really doesn't seem bothered with it and happily keeps it in there until the day after.
@TroubledTurds: Thanks for sticking around! I try to hold a low sulfur diet with low amounts of sugars while flaring. Diets are a bit like religion but the only evidence I have seen which is somewhat convincing is that UC people have an overproduction of gas from sulfur (especially when flaring) so thats what I'm targeting at the moment. This is what I eat during the days:Breakfast
Scottish Oats, Banana, linseed, walnuts mixed with some cocoa powder with some Almond milk. Heat it 1 minute in the microwave, let it cool off and then add some more almond milk before eating. Top it with some blueberries. Lunch
Typically take a gluten-free & preservative-free wrap and add whatever I have at home like avocado, some chicken piece leftovers cheese and butter. Typically eat a banana and a carrot with it.Dinner
It differs but I try to stick to plain things like potatoes, white rice, veggies and with some fresh white fish or chicken. I know those meats contain sulfur but its good to get some proteins so I just try to not overeat.
I eat dinner quite early like 4:30-5pm and then I eat nothing until the day after at around 7:00am. Just drink water. Thats kind of like Intermittent Fasting I suppose since its like 14 hours between those meals.
Status: Flaring since January 2019. Was in remission between April 2012 and January 2019 after performing FMT at home (~7.5 years).
Diet: Mediterranean diet with reduced sulphur intake during flare.
Medicine: Asacol, Pentasa and Prednisone when on flare
FMT: Performs Fecal Bacteriotherapy at home using my wife as the donor when on flare. Please see https://tinyurl.com/bw5fn8g
