Absolutely! You're developing a plan and that's what you need to see you through future flares and maintenance.
It all takes time, trial and error to get to the success.
You could try the alternating tapering...and if you regress a touch, go back quickly to the nightly steroid enema for another week annd try it again.
I just started using the Metamucil Smooth Orange (not the sugar-free) again...only once a day after supper. It's been great for me...considering you have hemmies, it might be just what you need to add a little "slip" to the exit of your poos...lol!
Keep us posted.
