I have posted before. Right now I am on 12 pills of asacol and trying everything rectally. Both my Dr. and I do not want to put me BACK on prednisone because all it seems to do is stop the bleeding but when I get off of it ..the blood comes back. I have about one inch of my rectum infected.
I just went through IVF#3 and had another miscarriage. I stayed on 2.5 mgs of prednisone until they did my Egg Retrieval and since getting off the prednisone back in August I have been bleeding.
Went to GI she said "lets get you pregnant...alittle bit of blood is not a big deal".....
We talked about the higher class of meds 6MP and Remacade but I think she knows that I would rather avoid until I have a baby.
I already saw Dr. Mark Peppercorn at Beth Israel in Boston who said the same thing.
So my question is.....
IS a little bit of blood okay?
Should I try doing the hydrocortizone enema both at night and in the morning?
Should I do rowasa in the morning and then the cort enemena at night?
I finally switched back to Asacol because I thought maybe the switch to colazal in March was the problem. I am def. dependent on prednisone (I have only taken it twice) but it seems everytime I get off it the bleeding comes back. I do have some muscus as well.
CAN DIET REALLY HELP with proctitis? I dont have Diar, or urgency right now.
Thanks so much for your help AGAIN! I am just not sure what to do.
DOES ANYBODY WHO JUST HAS PROCTITIS take 6MP or remicade????
