Awesome news Meech!!! You ve a lot to heal, and the rectum is really the worst and longest to heal...
You might want to consider to try the Canasa during the day in the afternoon...that might be enough to help calm the rectum enough for you to be able to hold the Rowasa in all night.
The other options could be to ask your doc for dicyclomine which is an antispasmodic...to help calm the gut a bit...use it before bedtime about
an hour before using the Rowasa.
Hope you continue to feel better...
