Presently I am now down to 10 mgm of prednisone daily. I take a Cort enema (which I can only retain for the most 1 hr) nightly and Canasa suppository in the morning. I inserted the Canasa about three hours ago and just had my first bowel movement....small one but formed. What concerned me was the amount of mucus I noticed with the stool. Hope and pray my flare isn't getting worse. Was thinking maybe it is from the Canasa.
