I joined this forum in November after a flare in August still had me in pain. I picked up lots of helpful information, doubled my Fybogel, introduced pure aloe vera juice and probiotics, was soon out of pain and thought I had everything under control. Well, pride goes before a fall!
Out of the blue, another flare, just before my holiday. So whilst everyone else will be out in the sun, then enjoying the all inclusive buffet, I shall be out in the sun, enjoying my antibiotics and fluid only diet! The only good thing is that I am one of the lucky people who does not have bad side effects from the medication - just a bit of a taste in the mouth.
I'm still trying to work out what triggered it - the only thing I can think of is the stilton sauce I had on my cauliflower and broccoli bake, as I became ill a few hours afterwards. My friend, who enjoyed the same meal, was absolutely fine. I gave up trying to convince myself it was just an ordinary tummy upset after a few days, and went back to the doctor for some more pills. So my point is that I think it is still necessary to watch your diet, and not become complacent. And after 15 years of dealing with this disease I am still learning - no more stilton!
