It has now been almost 1 year since doing the first FMT. I am still symptom free and drug free.
I am still eating SCD, although I did eat a Subway sandwich about a week ago with no reaction at all. Perhaps I the good bacteria is getting a good colony going and I am healing on the inside.
I can eat grapes now, which I couldn't eat before doing a FMT. That shows me that I am able to digest more of what I am eating, which is a good sign.
I am still eating homemade yogurt,homemade sauerkraut, and homemade kefir, every day. I know that helps feed the good bacteria in my gut.
I don't think I will ever go back to eating all the sugar and bread I used to. I feel SO much better and feel I have regained all my strength back that I had lost over those 3 1/2 years of not digesting food.
I am SO glad I was able to find where others wrote about how they did a FMT and it helped them. I firmly believe that the combination of SCD and FMT is what is healing me from UC.
Sugar, yeast, starch, gluten (grains) and lactose all feed the bacteria. Stop feeding the bad bacteria and start feeding the good bacteria and the symptoms go away.
Not sure how long I will stay exclusively SCD, but I want to be positive I don't have any setbacks.
If you have every wondered of doing a home fecal transplant will put you on the road to recovery, what have you got to lose?
(Read the procedure I did for a home fecal transplant on my November 2012 post.)
