Thanks for all the replies. Unfortunately, I did not respond to the few rectal meds my GI tried me on several years ago. We tried several, each one for a couple months, but nothing seemed to provide any improvement or really make any difference at all. Wish i could report otherwise.
However, the good news is that the bleeding has decreased noticeably since yesterday's posting, so I'm hopeful. If it does subside, I'm going to enter dry-roasted peanuts to the "no-no" food list, as I believe that might have been the cause. I had some two or three nights last week and, although it took a couple days to happen, I think that was the stimulus.
Christine1946; I was on 9/day Colazol but my GI doc. dropped me back to 6 when he put me on the Methotrexate.
Also, I will be sailing on Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas and we will go thru the Gatun Locks into Gatun Lake. I took this cruise in 2004 and, because it was the best cruise I ever had, we are taking the whole family with us this time. After sailing on Royal Caribbean, Disney and Carnival, we now only go with Royal.
