2 Months into the Diet



I seemed to have hit a snag here with diet or something.  I am still following the diet 100% and for the last several days, I have had a few "D" stools but not bad...just thinner...sorry for the description.  One minute they are normal with no blood or mucus and only 2 BM a day.  And then 1 normal BM first thing in am and followed later with slight "D" during the day.  I have been on this diet since the end of May.  I feel so much better and I have been tempted to not have Flex Sigmoidoscopy done in August but my doctor is pushing hard.  (I am afraid of the test and pain, big time!)  My original diagnoses was Bactria Dsybosis from NP in January (had stool test at Great Smokies Lab) and the allopathic doctor said in May...."cancer" we need this and this and remember my panic, I am sure. I still think this is a good case of IBS or maybe has reached UC at this point but I am so much better since starting diet the end of May.

It seems that you have been on the diet less than 2 months and I think you are doing quite well for that short a period.  I do not like to discourage a a medical examination but it sounds to me like you need to change doctors.  Once they get a "bug" in their heads like his diagnosis, they find it hard to change direction.  So find another doctor.  You will gain weight just as soon as all the diarrhea clears.  Only 2 BM's a day is not bad.
