I am a long term sufferer of Ulcerative Colitis usually experiencing flare ups at times when I have become very stressed. These can often last for months before they subside and true to form over the last 5 weeks I have experienced another flare up in part I suspect due to the pandemic. I am taking Octasa 800mg 3 tablets twice/day, Salofalk suppositories 3 times/day and Prednisolone 20mg/100ml at night time. This combination normally works but this time it is not doing so as I am still experiencing pain, frequency and bloody stools. I have lost over 1 stone in weight and normally within 30 minutes of most meals I have to make a dash to the toilet. I have not been able to go out much apart from shopping and as a result I am feeling physically and mentally low. I am due to go to my local hospital to the flare up clinic this coming Thursday where I hope they can provide me with a bit of hope!
I am being very selective diet wise eating only small portions of cooked salmon, cooked carrots , mashed potatoes apple sauce, white bread, boiled eggs, apple sauce, bananas and plenty of hot water.
Does anyone have any useful tips re medication and diet?
