what finally took the urgency away for you?
That is the only thing keeping me housebound. I don't have D often, and only go about 2- 3 times a day at most. Sometimes it's loose, sometimes not. Haven't had actual D in awhile.
I have bleeding, but very very minimal. (Like a bit on the toilet paper)
But the urgency is completely changing my life as when it hits I have maybe 60 seconds(sometimes less,) to get to a bathroom. Even at a mall you can't make it that fast usually.
He keeps pushing Pred on me which I have so far refused, as I thought pred was only for extreme needs, like going 10+ more times a day and heavy bleeding, and weight loss. I am actually 20 pounds overweight, so you see that is not a problem.
But that darn urgency has made us cancel all our trips(many driving), and rather than try to work around that I would like to know from you to please tell me what finally stopped the urgency for you.
I just don't know what to ask the doc to try anymore.
I'm so frustrated.
(Oh I do have lomotil and Bentyl, and it doesn't always work for me.)
Ulcerative proctitis. On Asacol 3 3x a day, and
Meslamine enemas nightly.
Now on Hydrocortisone suppositories for 2 weeks.
Urgency is still my biggest problem. rarely have D, but extreme gas and urgency at any given time.
