Thanks to this website, I am learning much about
my uc and how to treat it. I have two questions based on things I have seen other people post about
First, many of you take enemas and state this helps to get a flare under control. The only experience I have with enemas are the Fleet ones I have had to take to clear me out for a colonoscopy. I hated that step in process and I can't imagine how that would help with UC. Also, are there different names for enemas? How do these enemas work? How often do you use them? Do you need a prescription for them?
Second, I have seen many people post that they are on probiotics. What is this? What does it do? Where can you get it from?
Thanks for any help you can give me!
