I have lower colon UC, and this time the Rowesa doesn't seem to be helping the urgency at all,(but has made the blood way less)
I am ready to ask my doc for the steroid emenas(though he seemed reluctant the last time I asked, yet always seems to want to jump to Pred for me %^%$*)
Has anyone found that the cortifoam, helped where the Rowesa didn't? Do you have to taper the emenas like you do when you're on regular Pred?
Urgency seems to be my biggest and almost my only problem now. (very rarely have D) Of course it's also the worst, as I still can't travel, go out to dinner ect. It doesn't hit me often in the day, maybe only once or twice. But when it does, I better be within 60 seconds of a bathroom.
Edited to add, that my morning are no where near as bad as they were either, but I still won't leave the house in the AM.
Ulcerative proctitis. On Asacol 3 3x a day, and Meslamine enemas nightly.
Blood is a bigger problem for mme than D.
Now urgency is still my biggest problem. rarely have D, but extreme gas and urgency at any given time.
