    Hi Jacqueline, I was wondering what happened to you only the other day. It was your advice initially that set me up following this forum and a lot of useful things have come from it. I haven't seriously tried the probiotic route, what do you recommend?

    I find that my DD is always ready to grumble if I stray from the path and sometimes even if I don't, but touch-wood no need for antibiotics so far. Nice to hear from you. Xx

      Hello you,,,, what a nice surprise..... Do wish you would start the probiotics.I am sitting looking at mine, they sit permanently on the kitchen table. two a day .even take them away with me. Right------

      the label says



      with pectin

      3 billion friendly bacteria

      100 in the jar

      Treat yourself to some, they are on "buy one ,get one half price "at the moment

      Honestly Alex,, you will NOT regret it.

      Wish you lived near, I would come and  frog march you to the shop.

    Hi Jacqueline, I suppose I have thus far managed with fibogel once or sometimes twice a day. However I have noticed lately that I am getting more grumbles on the left side for no real obvious reason so I think I could try the probiotics.

    I don't think it's an infection, just that I'm getting more sensitive.

      Morning Alexandra,,bit late this morning,, I nevr took the fibogel,for some reason, it didn't do the bacteria job, that the Acid,,,, does,fight the,

      baddies.which it certainly does. .Since it got into my system Iv'e never  

      had a twinge,i can still remember the pain when I had that burst abcess,plus the threat that  surgery would follow if the infection spread.

      Don't suppose anyone medical has contacted you .to see if you are O.K ???  Very much a Self Help group, good job we are. Do you eat a bigger variety of food now ? I eat almost everything, but not big portions of anything,and anything new .just a bit, to see if everyone is happy.

      bowel movement is very important, to me ,as collecting "rubbish " I avoid at all costs.  

      Do you get pains that hurt,, don't put up with it for too long ,a visit to the doc ,would soon know, if it is your colon. Did you have a colonoscopy?

      Here I go ,,questions, questions,,,,, can't help it,,,,, I'm a Gemini

    Morning Jacqueline, I have what the doctors called 'moderate to severe DD ' and I have had a couple of colonoscopies so far where I had a small polyp removed each time. I'm down for another one in 2019 which I'm not looking forward to, but don't want to refuse because of the polyps and their links to bowel cancer long term. I don't generally get harsh pain, more grumbling like period pains used to be. If I get sharp pain, like vinegar on a cut, I go straight on a restricted diet for a few days at least, but this doesnt happen often thank goodness so I've avoided pills for over 18 months.

    I find I eat less variety now, but I think I get in a good balance of nutrition.

    I am cautious of processed meats like bacon, sausages etc, and also red meat so I eat those only occasionally, preferring fish or chicken these days.

    My doctor is there when I need him, but I try to avoid him if possible and manage things myself.

    I'm going to get some probiotic when next in town as I think it's worth a try to boost my gut health.

    I'm lucky in that I have never yet been in the situation you had where I have needed hospital. Hopefully I never will.

    Best wishes, Alex.

      hello Alex ,where does the time go to. I had a colonoscopy too soon after the infection, done by a nurse who did not do a very good job, he told me he had seen some polyps ,but had left them. I wrote to the consultant about it, all he said was, they had found "Nothing sinister ", and there has been no contact since, about another colon ,,,, so,, not much I can do, except keep going,on my tod Hope you stay on an even keel, at least you have a back up,

      Take good care of your colon. xxxx.
