c-o-t-o.....the 6 Asacol daily is a good start, and you should see "some" improvement over the next week or so.
Your GI will hopefully give you rectal meds, although the other doc could have regardless of you seeing the GI next week, but it's not a long while to wait considering you're also on antibiotics.
The align is a great idea.
Keep us posted as to how that appt goes.

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