Thank you - that's what I think too. Waiting for an appt. with a second doc as mine was reluctant but finally gave me Canasas which I use at night only (1000 mg) and I feel uncomfortable when I'm sitting at the computer for long times which is what I have to do for work. Also feel something at my rectum - no itching but uncomfortable. I want to try adding the foam as I can't keep enemas in at all. I also want to try a different med - I know when I tell my current doc that there's bleeding he will just want to up the Pred and not consider rectal. It sure seems that way to me.
