A pretty solid update
Things feel pretty good, still holding steady bowel wise. On the whole I’ve had a solid bowel movement almost every day for about two or three weeks now. Last week I did have one day of mushy bowels, but no big deal. I’m still have one bowel movement a day on average, sometimes two.
I still have some brief sharp pain when “evacuating,” which I attribute to possible hemorrhoids (any tips on getting rid of these?). I’ve yet to check with a doc about this. Yesterday I did in fact have tiny spots of blood on TP, but this was definitely from a fissure, not IBD blood, I used to get these little spots often before IBD when I had normal bowel movements. Honestly I didnt have solid stools for 5+ years, so maybe its a bit of a shock to the system, and is doing some tearing.
I’m also coming up to a very stressful, annual time for me.. the beginning of the semester! Yikes. I’m going to be teaching my first class ever, so hopefully my little comrades hold things together for me.
