My proctitus returned 3 weeks go with constipation, wind and some blood. I started on metamucil (unprescribed) for the constipation and also my pentasa enemas and colifoam. My 8 pentasa tablets have been taken continuously for years.
Now I am at a stage where everything is starting to settle down again with only slight drop of blood in a gas attack and no other for 3 days.
The constipation is gone to be replaced by 8 solid/floating normal looking BM per day plus gas.
I am wondering if I stop the metamucil as I think it may now be the cause of these latest symptoms.
I would like to at least halve the BMs if possible.
Would this be an advisable thing to try?
I am a bit nervous as I don't really want a repeat of the constipatin etc.
I will keep on the bum meds indefinitely I think until this flare is well and truly gone.
