Hi Beth...I'm doing fine actually...at the enemas every 4 nights and will be going to every 5 and staying there. I'm usually mega stressed during Spring...so don't want to push it. Otherwise, just got over a cold. My back has been a pain..lol...but need to do more exercise for strengthening and see the chiro more often. I have a quiet week..so looking forward to that bigtime.
I would definitely start the suppositories regardless and use the ointment if I were you....Even if it's a fissure (a possibility), it will help.
Good to hear there's no mucus with the mix...
Are you usually awake during the c-scopes? Cool to see what's going on in there...
Hope the week goes well for you...improves!
