so my flare is pretty well under control (knock on wood or something..right?) I have zero to 3 bm's a day (every now and then I don't have one) but typically it's once a day. However, they are yellow/light brown and still kind of stringy and squishy, but also not diarreah and no blood (YAY!). B/c it's still kind of stringy I think that means that I still have inflammation??? Prior to the flare I was in, my bm's were generally fully formed and dark brown.
My questions are how long is this type of bm acceptable? I mean to say, how long can the healing process take?
Can bm's change w/the type of meds and also after going through this bad flare, is it possible that these will be my new bm's that I wont go back to the old ones?
