I did start the Rowasa again last night. I was actually able to retain it - unlike earlier in this flare. So, I'll use it again tonight, and call the doc in AM to see what he suggests.
Yup, I'm on the max dose of Asacol. When I got out of the hospital, they upped my Aza from 75mg to 100mg. I don't think there's anywhere for me to go from there with these meds.
Q - thanks for the reminder about
the sun and the Aza. I had forgotten. I'm a red head with fair skin, so I normally use a ton of sunscreen, but right now I'm burning through a 45 SPF which I reapply often. Yesterday I was even wearing a rash guard shirt that has SPF in it and got a slight burn. The tops of my hands even burned! Should be better after next weekend - the bimini (giant sun umbrella type cover for the boat) is being installed.
There always seems to be a lot going on in life... Thank goodness for big water toys! Such a relaxing way to spend a day.
Thankfully, if there is an urgency issue while on the boat, I can always bail into the water. Won't be such a fun clean up and could be embarassing as we usually have other people along - but it would work! Also, since we're wakeboarding, my board shorts cover up a lot more than a regular swimsuit bottom :)
I'll let you know what doc says tomorrow. Until then - prepping for the visit from the in-laws (whom I get along with famously - thank goodness).
