By September my ‘condition’ was back to normal having ended the medications. I was ready for a colonoscopy to validate my success.
BOOM! The results were devastating and I was in a state of shock.
It was mid-October and I experienced my first ‘flare’ and had not been prepared for it. Visit to GI doctor for more meds and learned he was on vacation. I should take the meds and see him in November, meanwhile adjust my diet to lower the residue. What on earth does that mean?
I would find the answer elusive.
