Always nice when the prep is worth all the agony! Awesome to hear you're in remission .... stay that way...that's an order!
You could add a fibre supplement to also help with the diarrhea...it will also help even out the spasming after a while. That in conjunction with the Bentyl will help.
Did the doc suggest you use the enemas on maintenance? at least to help get the low rectal inflammation quiet. If not, I would suggest it at least every 5 nights.....(or even hydrocortisone supps)
*Heather* Status..Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares, tapered to maintenance mild flare nightly enemas
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls, Natural Factors Ultimate). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed; started Omega 3
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
