Depends. What were your symptoms previously?
What meds are you on at this time....still the Rowasa nightly? for how long?
You might want to consider a fibre supplement to help bulk the stool..it also softens it making it much easier to expel if your rectum is inflamed.
How long was it since you were got off pred..or are you still on it tapering?
Seems you're at a crossroads....hang tough....been there a few times.
Are you on any probiotics?
