Welcome to HealingWell. For proctitis (inflammation in the rectum), you should be on a rectal drug for maintainance. The oral drugs don't effectively make it to the rectum, and the drugs we take orally are actually topical drugs that work by direct contact with the colon wall. So if the medication doesn't get to your rectum, it can't help your proctitis much. If the cost of Canasa is a problem for you, generic Mesalamine enemas are available and are more economical.
I would avoid seeing a doctor there unless the bleeding becomes severe or you start having pain or other symptoms. But call your GI as soon as you get home to talk about
resuming your rectal drugs. They're (literally) a pain in the butt, but as you've seen they are quite effective for a lot of people.
