Thank you for posting this. I have been bleeding for a year now. I just had 6 days of no blood for the first time, but too bad it started up again yesterday. I am extremely depressed. Then I read this thread and find out there are others out there in the world that are bleeding too. Not that I wish anybody to be sick, I just am at the point where I am not sure if 6MP is worth it? Some of you who r on 6MP are still bleeding! Right now I am taking 12 asacol and doing the rowasa enema. I tapered the hydrocort enema and replaced it w/ the rowasa (and added aloe vera pills) and thats when I was not bleeding for 6 days. I knew it wouldn't last. I am just so torn about 6MP. Why take it if some of you still bleed?
I have proctitis in about an inch of my rectum.
