    My grammar was bad on last comment.

    I meant mesalamine liquid enema not mesalamine foam enema.

    We're you talking about the enema?

    Good to hear about the vegetarian, you might want to back off on all fiber so your intestines can rest.

    Also no dairy for a while, eat 2-3 coconut milk yogurts per day. Hydrate hydrate hydrate with water, or coconut water is a natural inflammatory.
