I need some answers from colitis sufferer's

I was diagnosed last year with colitis. I hate it ....ugh. I am on Asocol and probably will be for the rest of my life. Although I feel better, I still have flareups. Like today... I can eat a normal well-balanced meal, and be fine for a week, then BAM it feels like I'm passing gas inside my intestines!!! People can hear it!! Then I have loose stools for about 4-5 days... and I sometimes can't help but fart..(only when I can get away with it).. and it smells awful.. not that it should smell like roses.... but I'm getting so sick of dealing with this. Is there anybody that goes through this like me? How do YOU deal with it... Is there any hope??

Re: I need some answers from colitis sufferer's

jendog, i was diagnosed with microscopic colitis (lymphocytic) in October. I am on Asacol 400 mg. 4 tabs/3 times a day. I have the same problem with the once a week flare-ups. I am getting so frustrated. I have not had a normal BM in almost two years. The doctor started me on Asacol two tabs 3 times a day and I have had to increase it. Its like my body gets use to the dosage and then BAM flare-up. He did mention something about Prednisone for 3 months if this doesnt work. I can sympathize with you, believe me. Its nice to finally find someone that is going through the same thing. Hang in there.
