Hey Guys,
 
I want to first say this site is awesome.  Talking to you guys about things is such a good feeling. 
 
I was on this site before and told you guys that I haven't told my parents yet about my UC and I have had it for 2 years.  I plan to tell them this weekend as I have lost a lot of weight and they are really worried...so wish me luck.  If you have any advice on how to tell them then please share.
 
Also, about the Vitamin E enima's...what type of applicator do you guys use?  I recently started Remi (only 1 dose so far), my next one is on this comign Tues so far I haven't seen any differance.  I am having a lot of bleeding was figured it doesnt' hurt to do teh vitamin E enima's while taking the Remi...maybe it will help treating from all ends.
 
Thanks,
Blue5

I would print out a good description of what it is, because they most likely won't remember what you tell them. Then when they go to tell someone else they will get it wrong. My parents are bad about that. I'll hear that someone got a colonoscopy, and my mom will say they got a colonostomy, lol.

I use an empty hydrocortisone bottle. The rowasa's are alright to use, but I like the hydrocortosine ones better because they are clear. If you are bleeding you should have a box of those on hand anyway. With the hydrocort bottle, you can fill the water up to just under the 60ml writing and be at 3 tablespoons. Then just pop the E caps with a safety pin or nail and squeeze them in. I have also found my cat likes to lick the rest off of my fingers, lol. I use plenty of A&D too, so I don't cause any irritation with the tip.
Proctitis DX 1999, Pancolitis DX 2008

I have found vitamin E enema as the best treatment for UC. It stopped my bkleeding within a day. Best of luck
