Hi Sherry! Great to hear you had the procedure done and are now at home recuperating. Yeah, the gas isn't pleasant...although when I had tubal ligation done through lap-scope, I was quite focussed on the horrific symptoms of a severe bladder infection with bleeding too from the catheter.
So, that made for a 10 day course of meds.
I found this site that might help..although it's for endo...no matter.
What exactly did the doc do in there?
Seems your fingers are working well...lol!
Get lots of rest....R-E-S-T!!!
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
