Sounds like a good plan.....the 5ASA foam enemas aren't available in North America (US or Canada)...sadly...for they would be a less leaky/drippy option.
They're 1000 mg dosage I believe...but distribution would be better than the suppository.
Yes, you need to be on an oral 5ASA ... it's a low dosage for you to start..which is also good. That's what I started at. You can increase if necessary.
Let me know how it goes....
Great to hear things are improving.
