Oh DOUBLE WOW!!!! That's definitely some doc you have. What's 75 miles anyway? not much I wouldn't think...because there's a lot to be said for quality.
With the Rowasa and Canasa, you can have yourself a very good set-up for treatment and maintenance. Lots of options in using them in combination to have them last longer..with the most amount of benefit.
In any event..seems Friday will be a good day for you..just in time for the US holiday weekend!
Yep, my doc is right...and remember that he said that to me 20 years ago. more docs of today best start getting with that philosophy.
*Heather* Status: maintenance Asacol 6 daily + Salofalk enemas every 3rd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x 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....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
