KSpace..have you tried any 5ASA retention enemas such as Rowasa (or Salofalk if you're not in the US)?
Strange you call 15cm left sided..which would be incorrect (left-sided would be up to the splenic flexure or well past the sigmoid)...yours would be classified as ulcerative proctitis.
I sometimes call them bugaboos..but beasties eems to fit better...my generic term. Glad you liked it.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... increased enemas to nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
