I searched and could not find the info I had before - sorry.
I have been using the hydrocortisone enemas for 5 days now. They are much more liquid than the foam or even the Rowasa I tried before. I have to use them over the toilet (due to physical problems). Therefore, liquid is running into the toilet and out of me and I can only empty bottle 1/2. I do retain that all night with some "work". So far nothing is better - bleeding seems a little worse. My NP told me there are no steroid suppositories equal. I was using Proctofoam but switched to enema because it is stronger, I guess. I am using it this way for at least a couple more days and then calling NP - I should see some improvement by now.
What I need is a stronger steroid rectal med that goes up a ways or at least stays in.
