Hi...you certainly have a lot of issues going on in that colon of yours. I think the low sodium diet would be to not retain any fluid...especially since you're on entocort and you had minor surgery from the polyp removal. The other possibility is that sodium (which attracts fluid), through the colon after a c-scope, could cause you some diarrhea and urgency.
I'm guessing, but it seems logical. Consider that the purgatives before a c-scope are mostly salt...
Please let us know the results...
Has your doctor ever asked if you've considered to have your colon removed?
