Hi everyone. I so much appreciate reading and learning here. I often feel I just don't know enough to contribute.
Even though I have had UC for over 20 yrs. I spent the last 15 years in remission mostly where all I needed was Asacol. Until 8 months ago, when i began to flare. Moderate flare with one serrated Sessile polyp removed from the ascending colon. I used Pentasa enemas for a couple weeks and it settled down for a while.
I never had diarrhea over the years, until this year. I never had gut pain until this year. But now, I have a combo, some semi formed poops, and "mucus covered peas"....my gut is gurgling all the time. I feel tired and depressed again. But I can't find a food trigger. Could be chocolate, coffee, or a ton of salads and Vegetables that never used to effect me.
Now I have eliminated the foods I thought bothered me, but I seem to be getting worse. My question is: should I try and see my GI, or try the Enemas again? And for those from the Vancouver area, I have tried to find a support group in the valley, say Abby or Langley area to know avail. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
