so the DR. gave me a new Rx for rowasa... im not to happy about it but he said it would help me a lot with my inflammation. right now im having 2 to 3 sick days or "BAD days" a WEEK. not very good when i start school agen for the summer. and im freaking out because idk what this med is going to do to me! i read that ppl get craps and pains and im nervous. i've never put an enema in my self... does it hurt..? i guess im'a bout to find out because i have to start to night. wish me luck.

Don't worry! Rowasa is soo easy - just lay down on left side and slowly put it in. no pain at all, just make sure to keep it in as long as u can - I usually lay on my left side for 1/2 hr, then just go to sleep. First BM after Rowasa is more solid then before for me.

yeah they're easy...the hardest part is holding it in becasue it will feel like you have to run to the br fast if ou put it in too fast...so take your time.
