I agree with the other members' suggestions. Do inform the doctor asap about
your new symptoms.
Did you just start the rectal meds?
Cut out the echinacea (increases the immune system response), fish oil and aloevera tabs for now...
You could add a fibre supplement to help bulk up the stool a bit as well as ask the doctor for an antispasmodic (I use dicyclomine).
Keep us posted as to how you're doing.
