I did the same thing - using about 1/2 the enemas because there is so much inflammation and swelling in the rectum they want to come right out. I laid still for 30 minutes. First 15 was painful but MADE them stay in there, absorb and then I was ok. They did help untl I started having worse bleeding so doctor took me off. I am now on prednisone and 6MP (2 days of that) and everything going great SO FAR!!
