I'm currently in week 7 of using the Diltiazem cream and i'm also feeling much better. Took me a long time to feel a benefit though so the fact that you are already feeling improvement at this stage is a good sign. To keep my bms soft I have a bowl of bran in the morning and take one satchet of a laxative a day. The doctor gave me Laxido but most people on this forum use miralax/movicol. I personally find that a bit too hard on my stomach. I haven't cut anything out of my diet. Still eating meat and dairy. As long as you have some form of fibre everyday and take a stool softener or laxative, anything that draws water into your bowel, you should be fine to eat normal meals.

For me personally, every time I try to add foods I know are iffy, I take several steps back so I've been following an perfect diet for months now. I haven't felt any pain or discomfort in a couple weeks, and I'm just now starting to try different foods slowly. And I'm still taking Miralax/Restoralax daily. Give yourself a bit of time to heal up before going back to any of your favourite foods, or it'll slow down the healing process a lot, in my opinion.
