so, what exactly is the improvement you can say...still urgency, but with the same ## of bms daily? Same amount of blood? less, more because of pooling?
Any rectal discomfort?
Are you taking the Asacol as well as the enemas?
3 weeks should show you "some" improvement...but for some it can take a few months. I would say give it the best shot for at least another month...nightly.

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