     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.

The Canasa sometimes coats my stool with white-ish stuff. Do you think maybe that's what you saw? I've used Canasa quite a bit and whether it coats the stool with white or not seems to depend on on how empty/full my colon might have been when I inserted it....
I also sometimes randomly have mucus and it doesn't turn into a flare.
I hope either one of these is the case with you!!
