I do, rectal area and left sided colitis. I first was diagnosed back in 1986. I was put on Azulfidine pills and Rowasa enemas. Periodically I have flareups and have to go back to the doctor. I am pretty much in remission and my flares are not that often although this time I have had two now in a couple of months. I was changed from the Azulfidine to Asacol 400mg several years ago and take 3- 2X a day. I am experiencing unfortunately some on and off urgency issues with rectal bleeding as we speak.
In the past I have also used the Canasa 1000mg suppositories. They were ineffective in my past flare however. Did not reach where the inflammation was. This flare has me totally stressed out as did the other recently. But this one is more so. I am sure I am going to have to call the doctor back again as I cannot even make it to the bathroom. But unfortunately they won't just call me in the Rowasa enemas most times and require me to come back in even though I was just in there 3 weeks ago, and many of the pharmacies do not stock the enemas all the time and have to order them.
This disease is not pleasant and it can elevate your stress levels so be glad you don't have many problems right now.
