Has anyone started smoking again to curb UC symptoms, and it did not work?
How long after you started smoking again did you see relief?
This would be my last resort, so I do not take this as a quick fix, but I want my life back, and if everything else I try does not worlk, I would consider smoking a few cigarettes a day again to be able to live and enjoy our family functions, and walk in the park again.
If you feel smoking is the worst of all evil, and living your life without a colon, or in your house is a better option, that is your opinion and I respect it. Please respect mine to consider this if all else fails.
Ulcerative proctitis. On Asacol 3 3x a day, and
Meslamine enemas nightly.
Now on Hydrocortisone suppositories for 2 weeks
Doc now has me on prescription Pepcid, and Questran. Just started that 05/15, so will wait and see.
Urgency is still my biggest problem, and extreme gas. Blood is now gone.
