Hi, having a very depressing day. Things have been going good - normal BM's, only pinkish discharge. Then today I have had two bathroom trips with red blood. Still no mucous or diarhea but why is the blood back? My doc was going to start my taper when I visit him this Thursday. I haven't even had coffee or anything - trying to be soooo darn good it disgusting. Could it be that the Asacol isn't for me? I've wanted him to give me Azulphidine - also wanted him to add the foam. I'm just crazed - suggestions, comments? Thanks.
