So I freaked this morning and called the doctor after having a hard big poo (can that be from too much fiber)...with the same amount of traces of blood. I did the hyrdrocortisone enema last night. This morning I started to think maybe the canasa is not doing the trick so I did a rowasa enema. I am obviously ALL CONFUSED and ALL OVER THE PLACE RIGHT NOW!!
1). Is rowasa more effective than the canasa (what if the canasa is not reaching the "one inch of proctitis that I have"?
2). I was asacol for 2 years and never had a problem until I got off my mediciation, got pg and had a miscarriage...what is better...colazal or asacol for proctitis? Since I have been put on the colazal I have had a flare up.
3). Is it normal to have "traces of blood" in your stool? Am I freaking out too much?
4). My last sigmoidoscopy was July 8th.....when the dr. calls back....I am tempted to ask for another one. I want to see if I have made any progress in the past month.
5). The prednisone is obviously working as I am not dripping blood into the bowl or having mucus...I just do not want to up my dose and want to stay CLEAR of it.
6). Anybody with ONE INCH OF proctitis on remacade? Seems so harsh for my condition.
Thanks for all the advice!!
