I was proctosigmoiditis on 05 and dx'd pancolitis Apr 08, I believe my last flare was the culprit.
I cried on the way home after my colonoscopy it is hard news to get. I do not think the e's can reach all the way up, though my GI still has me using them in my current flare b/c it will still help the lower part of my colon. I have thought of standing on my head too and maybe using 2 e's.
For me the main difference is the severity of my flares has increased. I hope that you are able to get your flare into remission soon!
Beth, 32 ~ small flare - hoping caused by aspirin - hydrocortisone e's
