Just a quick summary, I have pan-colitis, on Imuran and Mesalazina for 2 years.
For over a year now Ive been bleeding, so for over a year Ive been applying rectal meds.
Started with the retention ones, then last 3 months its been Budesonide foam in the morning and 1g Mesalazina suppository at night.
Went from a calprotectin of 3000 to 950 to 488 and the one last week was 86.
Symptom wise I was seeing a lot less blood and had no other symptoms.
My diet is mostly healthy although I do still drink fizzy drinks and have candy every now and then and Ive been fine.
So here’s the thing. I went to the cinema last Saturday after avoiding it for nearly 2 years due to Covid.
I went a little too far by eating loads of popcorn, bag of candy and a massive coca cola.
That night I had tons of gas I was letting out and at about 5am the next day I had very bad diarrhea that lasted hours. The closest type of diarrhea I’ve had to that is the prep before a colonoscopy…so you can imagine.
Its now been 48 hours and my intestines are still making noises with implosions and I have that ill feeling. Noticed a but of mucus yesterday when I pushed.
Have I severely altered the gut flora maybe and need to start with probiotics?
I cant believe this has happened from eating a few things, It feels like I picked up a virus but Im not vomiting.
