You're improving nicely, and would NOT need to increase the enemas twice a day.
You should make sure, however that you have many more refills for the enemas.... it might take you a few months of nightly enemas before the bleeding completely stops, the urgency stops and your stools are once or twice a day (subjective depending on what and how much one eats).
Please don't get fixated on the bleeding...it's freaky at first, but you're not in a state that's not abnormal for proper healing process with 5ASA neds.
Stick with them and please remember to taper them once you're back to normal....every second night for maybe a few weeks to a month, then if all is fine, every third night...etc.
I had lots of ups and downs with flaring and tapering the first two years. My doc did give me the go ahead to have control of the increasing and tapering and it wasn't until the third year I got the hang of it.
Been doing it for now 20 years...and if you can use them for that long, it's a good thing.
Like I said, don't make more of it than what the norm of it is while healing.
Now, I'm confused about the left-sided diagnosis....is that what the doc called it? because if so, the enemas aren't enough. You should also be on an oral 5ASA med such as Asacol.
*Heather* Status: mild flare enemas tapered to every 2nd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~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 !!!
