When my flare was at its worse and I found it hard to retain Rowasa and the Cort enemas, my doctor prescribed Canasa suppositories. They are quite expensive even with my insurance but they helped until my condition improved somewhat and I could start retaining the Cort enemas once again.
I also have a portapotty which we always kept in our van but now we just bought a Ford Expedition and I think it will be a challenge for me to sit on a portapotty in that! LOL! Anyway, hope I don't ever need to again. I am in remission and it is heaven!
You'll get well again. Did you try antispasmotic medication? I never did but read some of the people posting have used them and they helped. Think I will try them if need be next time...which I hope and pray there isn't a next time with the ulcerative proctitis.
