Hi...you've been on the Salofalk enemas or the suppositories? Nightly for the past month as in 30 times you've used it?
Continual stress can definitely cause some symptoms and hinder healing...but it also depends on severe your inflammation was before starting the meds.
Considering you have pancolitis...what other symptoms are you having at this time...diarrhea? how many times are you running to the bathroom?
One strange thing that happens with UC...it flares from the bottom up and heals from the top down...so the lower part of the rectum is the last to heal, and can be the most difficult.
getting it checked out might not be a bad thing....but if you're improving since you started the Salofalk (again, I don't know if it's the enemas or suppositories), you should just continue treatment.
*Heather* Status: ...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas every 2nd night

~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
