I've been on Cort enemas nightly and Canasa suppositories in the morning since the end of May. However, after inserting the suppository on Friday morning I had terrible burning in the rectum. I skipped the Canasa on Saturday morning but inserted one yesterday and had the same reaction...burning and discomfort and pain when I passed gas. Thought maybe this was due to a fissure or hemmie. I was going to call my GI doctor today but instead I used Tucks yesterday and today...skipped the Canasa. I had two well formed bowel movements this morning (as I have been having for a few weeks now), no blood and I had no pain with the bowel movements. So, gonna stop the Canasa. Don't know whether to stop the Cort enemas though. I haven't taken one for a few nights now.
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare. Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count. Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.
