Do I dare ask what a "stiffy" is? LOL.

Yes, I'm on board with the dry fart consensus. When a dry, 10 second, 4 octive fart sounds like angels above singing the Hallelujah, I feel better. Not decorating my shorts with mucous is definitely a bonus.

Yep, farting with no surprises added in, along with the decrease in urgency and blood.
 
 
Dx:  2006
 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.

You're on the mend when you go to your favorite store, ect., and actually have to remember where the restrooms are!

Colon gone. No farting allowed :)

Oh wow! I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one who gets the wet farts during a flare.  The absense of that and any blood or horrid urgency like I'm about to pass a bowling ball is also an a-okay sign for me.
