Sorry to hear your daughter is having more troubles. I think my Gyno told me once my cervix was inflamed but I was never on any meds for it. I am not even sure, sorry. I wouldn't douche, I don't think it is a good idea personally. I didn't realize how many rectal meds she is taking, that really seems like too much. My GI has always been very agressive with meds, or so I thought, but that seems extreme. I have a guess, I am definitely not a doctor, but my guess is maybe she has the cervical inflammation because of a high level of inflammation in her body right now? If my GI says the reason I have Arthritis is the high amount of inflammation within my body because of UC, maybe it could affect the cervix? How was her white blood cell count? I have no idea about the urine thing... I would try to figure that out with the doctor and in the meantime have her reduce her sugar and starchy carbs some. My GI likes to give me lots of meds often, like I said, not to that extreme, but he claims that rectal meds and Asacol target the colon and little is absorbed into the bloodstream so it is ok to be agressive with them... I still think that is too many though, I wouldn't want to be trying to hold all that in every day, it must be hard for her! I think it is really sweet how you really are so caring to your daughter. Not to put down my parents, but I basically had to tell them stuff because they were clueless. She really will be ok and just remember that. It isn't easy, but she will learn how to live with UC. It takes a lot of trial and error with meds, diets, doctors, etc but she will be more mature because of this and appreciate things so many young people take for granted.
