It reduces inflamation in the colon.The volume of stool produced can be deceiving. The colon doesn't store up old stool for release at a later date. There is no way for it to retain some things while sending other stuff along.In addition to fiber and water the stool also contains bacteral cells (small individually but enough to make some volume) and the cells that come off the lining of the gut (it is much like your skin shedding, but all of it comes out lumpted together rather than the shedding of skin cells).A girl in my dorm went on a very dangerous diet. You ate nothing at all, just took some pills. (we found out at the end of the month of doing it, she didn't tell anyone while she was doing it) even when you don't eat you will still poop from the bacteria and the shed lining cells.K.------------------�When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall�Think of it, ALWAYS. �Mahatma GandhiMy story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html I do not work for anyone who sells any IBS related products.[This message has been edited by kmottus (edited 09-27-2001).]

thank you kmottus- so does that mean that some of the mass is actually bad bacteria and bad gut lining? is this therefore a good situation i.e. is my body cleaning out the rubbish? should i stick to it or tell my doc whats been happening and come off it?thanks mate.

It could be debris from your colon healing itself.I wouldn't stop taking asacol without talking to the doctor. It usually isn't prescribed for IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) but for one of the IBD's (Inflamatory Bowel Disorders) or other inflamation in the gut. Going off of it could cause the inflamation to flare back up again and that can set you up for a really bad time. If the inflamation gets too out of hand they have to resort to prednisone which works really good, but is very hard on your body overall if you have to be on it for any length of time.K.------------------�When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won.
