Got my scope today and I have moderately severe ulcerative colitis. The prep went well (Miralax/ducolax and gatorade). My GI put me on 9 Asacol 400mg pills a day-3/3/3. Hopefully this helps the blood and mucous go away soon. I asked about
the mesalamine enemas and he didn't feel it was necessary at this point in time. He said he would re-evaluate in 3-4 weeks and determine if I needed a change or add on. Well, thanks for listening and hopefully all goes well.
