Bellski - I was prescribed one Canasa at bedtime. Nothing else. Doctor mentioned that if that did not work (told me day of colonoscopy) "we" would try something else.
After two weeks I still have bleeding each morning and just want to get healed so I can have knee surgery. Wondering what others do to help - read where fiber is not good and then where fiber IS good. I am confused. Last time I tried eating high fiber or taking fiber supplements I had so much gas, pain and diarrhea I had to quit.
My appointment with gastro doc is not for 3 more weeks. I was hoping to do better by now and not have to take Imodium so much.
I don't understand how you can take use the suppositories in the morning. I have to lay down for at least an hour. Do you get up early and go back to bed? I do retain them all night but what a mess in the morning!
Thanks for your reply and maybe I can get the gastro doc on the phone one day this week or his nurse.
