I'm not bleeding, yet, either. But I've had ulcerative proctitis for over ten years and I just know when I am flaring. The pressure is very uncomfortable and I see the mucus in the stool. So far my stools are formed and I went about three times today. All I can do is watch my diet very carefully and hope the Cort enemas and Canasa work without going on that dreaded prednisone.
Sometimes I wonder if my falling really hard on my butt four years ago has worsened my condition. Just a thought.

Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.
