Well, my sinus infection is gone, and so are my symptoms of a flare. I used my Rowasa for a week now everyday, I will still use them now everyother day for a week, then every3 days etc... I have been in remisson for 21months and I wanted to keep it that way. I'm not sure if upping my probotics helped, or taking the Rowas's did it, or if my tried and true method worked, Guiness & Hot Wings!! I'm just glad I'm back to normal. Anyway, I just wanted to share this.

Congratulations! It's a victory any time you get through an infection and antibiotics without flaring. I swear by probiotics for that, because I can't use Rowasa.

Hey, that's great news, Sodbuster! about the hot wings clearing your sinuses, a friend of mine swore by Hot/Sour Soup at Chinese restaurants. Take care. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)
