Discussions that mention asacol

Bowel Disorders board


Thanks clover. I drank 1/2 a bottle and waited all night, but nothing... than left to do some shopping the next day and had to run 4 times. Its been loose ever since. I quit taking my asacol for the last couple days so thats likely the reason for the loose bm now. Just thought it'd clear things out. My bms haven't been loose nor was I constipated before this, but my bottom has been sore and irritated. I wonder if the temp colostomy had an effect on the bottom, or if the diverticulitis is back. No one mentioned Chron's when I had surgery either, but that causes the sore bottom too. I'm not looking for trouble, but want to be sure I'm doing everything possible to stay healthy. I had no idea I had the diverticulits until was severe. Thought it was just "nervous stomach" or lactose intolerance. Can't get into the gastroenetrologist until Feb!. Hope it doesn't get worse before then...
