Hi..welcome to the forum!
I would say that you definitely need oral 5ASA meds in conjunction with the Rowasa....both ends treated, oral for above the sigmoid and the Rowasa for up to and into the sigmoid.
You're obviously flaring above the sigmoid, and with that active, the rectal symptoms won't be dealt with effectively, even though you're on rectal meds.
It's great the SCD helped with your pain, discomfort....
Call the GI and get an appointment asap...or if you are able, call to talk with your GI and request a script
for Asacol to start.
To also deal with the diarrhea and help to slow it down a tad, you could add a fibre supplement. i use Metamucil, but there may be others that are SCD acceptable if you're still adhering to that.
Keep us posted as to how you're doing.
*Heather* Status..Asacol (3 x2 daily); flaring /Dec 22, tapered to every 3rd nite..back to nightly (Jan 22)..tapered too fast
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
