I am considering going on rectal meds but not steroid ones.
Is there a 5-ASA version? I don't like taking oral meds and would much rather have a suppository once a night. My bleeding is from piles but it might be (small chance) coming from the rectum - so I have these questions.
1. Are there any rectal meds that can treat both the inflammation and the piles at the same time?
2. Can the rectal meds treat the whole colon or just the rectum? (I have some small inflammation on the right side)
3. Rectal meds are invasive but I am fine with that so long as it works!
Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: 2 Patches of Mild Chrohn's Colitis (unconfirmed)
