Hi guys. Thanks for the responses.
Old Hat -My next gastro. appt. is March 11. I mentioned the possibility of me taking Cortifoam to my GI at my last appt. in Oct. or Nov. (can't remember when exactly) and he said he didn't think the benefit would outweigh the risks since at that time I only had mild rectal inflammation and few symptoms (3-5 BMs with a little urgency). Maybe since I'm bleeding again he will want to put me on it. I will bring it up to him again. Thanks. I will also bring up the possibility of switching 5-ASAs.
quincy - I don't think I have a fissure...it doesn't really hurt like I have a cut when I have a BM, but I do have some increased urgency and a little discomfort and mild cramping, especially when I'm trying to go to the bathroom. I feel like I'm having smaller deposits, too, and more gas with some mucous. One time today, I just had a little blood come out and nothing else. No, I'm not vegan. I still eat eggs, cheese and other dairy products, but no animal flesh (no chicken, fish, etc.). I was taking fish oil pills for a while though occasionally, but stopped. My next period is about a week and a half away.
For now, I will keep up with the Rowasa every night and up my probiotics.
