It's good you have a prescript
ion in case. I would, however, suggest you ask for a prescript
ion of a 5ASA retention enema or the foam enema such as Asacol, Pentasa or SAlofalk..whatever is available over "yonder"...lol!
I agree with the weight gain...could partly have been from the steroid enema, however...but it's good you're gaining some weight.
I used to eat anything all my life...thin naturally...but middle age helped put on the weight. I've since lost a bit by eating much better..meaning better choices. I do eat all of the food groups, however.
I don't drive a scooter, but my husband just got one this past Spring...an Aprilia Scarabeo 200. He's enjoying it immensely...and the lower price of gas consumption.
Keep us posted as to how you're doing...
