Thanks for the detailed explanation. One more question. Are you saying that you have used coffee enemas successfully in dogs?
Hopefully, you have done research on IBD to get a better understanding on the complexity of it all. Actually, it is not uncommon for broad spectrum antibiotics to be a trigger for UC, including antibiotic related C. difficile infections. For most of us, we were not sick until we were. Like being struck by lightening. I do hope this treatment is successful for your husband. He is lucky to have such a devoted wife who works so hard to help him.
If not, don’t be too afraid of other treatments. I have been dealing with UC since I was 15, with decades of spontaneous remission, but eventual colectomy, j-pouch, and later chronic pouchitis. Currently, I am onRemicade infusions and in remission from the pouchitis for several years. Many of us have tried non medical treatments to get back on track. Some with better success than others.
