Reading all the material - seems no problem for me trying it anyway - don't take any other medication to cause problems, don't drink alcohol and just have to wait for side effects or not!  It mentioned fungal infections being a problem.  I have many of those - like every other week or so - under the folds of my skin in damp places.  It is like "jock itch".  As far as I know it has not invaded my body - only once infected my lower area briefly.  Right now fungus free but I never know when it will return.  I use Desenex powder to prevent it and cortisone cream to heal it.  I forgot to tell my gastro doc about it!
Senior - New diagnosed with proctosigmoiditis - 6/2008
Tried all mesalamines and enemas, Canasa, etc.  Colonoscopy 10/28 showed only few cm. left to heal -hydrocortisone enemas 12 days - much worse. Cannot tolerate mesalamine!
2/3/2009 - sigmoidoscopy showed about 30 cm. involved but mild - starting on prednisone only 40 mg. taper on 2/7/2009.
 Feb. 21 - down to 20 mg. - no blood, no pain, no bad side effects so far. Starting 6-MP Feb. 28 along with 20 mg. prednisone.

Call his office and let the nurse know so he can let you know if there may be a problem. If he's like my GI, he'll just "watch" things and proceed anyway.
