I've been using hydrocortisone enemas for 3 weeks and I haven't seen any improvement. My Dr prescribed rowasa but she told me to finish 2 more weeks of hydrocortisone before moving on to rowasa. I'm also taking aprisol 4 pills a day. She said its equivalent to asacol, its just condensed into 4 pills because they are slow release pill. BTW this is my first flare I was diagnosed a little over a month ago. I have uc a little bit above the rectum I think its called sig-? I don't have d I just have streaks of blood with mucus in my stool. My bm have improved I use to go about
3 to 4. Times in the mornings and throughout the day.
I want to know when will these enemas kick in. The Dr. Said she doesn't want to put me on prednisone since its only a small part affected. She feels the enemas should take care of it.
Any advice or experience with enemas? When will They work? I want it to go into remission because We'd like to try to start trying for a baby. Thanks.
