Mild symptoms, thankfully. Some cramping, loose BM. My Bristol scale is 4-6. No bleeding in 3 mos. at which time it was very mild and lasted only a few days because I went to daily Rowasa usage. having read many entries, I feel truly blessed my symptoms aren’t as severe as others here!
Something interesting about me: I’m American Indian and sing at Pow Wow’s.
I was first diagnosed, C-Scope, at 50 with Proctitis. I was using Canassa off and on probably because I was in denial and didn’t have severe symptoms. I was good for about 7 years and then I began to bleed more frequently etc.. Last C-Scope two years ago revealed Proctosigmoiditis.
So, needless to say I was a bit more freaked out. Began the Rowasa regimen which I was in saddened, depressed and full of anxiety about. Rowasa has worked very good keeping my symptoms mild. Over the past 3or 4 weeks, I started experiencing some abdominal cramping, loose BM etc but no blood. So, I started poking around the internet and thankfully fell into this site!
Just began SCD and FODMAP. After a few days what a marked difference! If it weren’t for this site I may have never stumbled upon this way of living! My ultimate goal, as probably us all, is to get off Meds!
My question is for my veteran SCD and FODMAP followers…..how long did it for your symptoms to go so far into remission you ended or cut back your medicinal regimen?
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
