My 15 year old son had persistent bleeding so he tried Mesalamine enemas.  The good news is that within 5 days the bleeding had stopped. The bad news is that he has developed foul smelling gas and now stomach cramps.  Could it be the enemas?  When he tried Asacol in the past, it gave him a little gas (not like this and we stopped it right away). He has been on the enemas since 8/23 and stopped bleeding 8/28. He takes one enema at night.  I do not want to change anything because I do not want the bleeding to come back.
Please let me know any recommendations to decrease the gas/cramps-he does not even want to go to school because of the embarassment of the gas!
He is also on:
Cucumin, Boswellia, Seacure, Probiotics (Natren & Culturelle), Acupuncture
thank you!
