I have had uc for at least 15 years. I am in the middle of a flare. Have been for over a year I guess. I just thought it was normal for uc'ers to go lots. I always have blood and somewhat formed stools. Lately before colonoscopy it got bad, going 20+ times a day with no poo just mucus and blood. Plus the feeling that I am never done. I had colonoscopy on Friday the 8th and Dr. said inflamation in rectum. (I have an appointment with him on Thrusday) He prescribed cortifoam. My question is how long does it take cortifoam to work?
I am down to about
10 bathroom trips with only mucus/blood. No poo. I take asacal 2/ 2X day and am currently taking miralax at night for constipation. At first had LOTS of pain but that has gone away now only somewhat discomfort in tummy area under belly button left side.
