I have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis since July. I am having trouble with my diet. Sometimes whether I eat out or at home, I get these attacks that lets me remain on the toilet for an hour or two. I am on medication called apriso and florastor for probionic. I was told to stay away from roughage, milk, & cheese. Any suggestion that has helped anyone else. It seems like my social life has been curtailed at least during the morning hours.

good luck, I know I try to find safe foods and then only try new foods one at a time and a few days apart. its not always possible but its good to have an idea what was new to my diet if I don't feel well after eating.
