Wow...interesting regarding the imodium daily dosage. It's not to say you can't ever take them....but I think that if it's flare related, you shouldn't unless you absolutely need to for an occasion, etc.
It seems the fibre is working for you already...which is awesome. What form of psyllium are you taking and how much?
I personally would encourage you to ask for the retention enemas rather than using the Canasa. It'll treat up to and into the sigmoid.
Hope each day you feel better.

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