just wanted to check in and see if anybody has had a similiar experience with hydrocort or another rectal med.
i was on rowasa for awhile (years) with no more improvement, switched to hydrocort nights and proctofoam days, and for almost 2 weeks i was doing great, did not see blood, did the uc happy dance thinking i was trending upwards towards remission and then boom.... back to blood and pain ugh for the past week.
for what its worth, a few month back i stopped the rowasa, started the hydrocort enemas and for a week or two thought i was heading towards remission, then i went back to the rowasa.
the rowasa probably gets me as close to ive gotten to feeling better (which is 3-5 urgent formed bms with trace blood, but no pain).
why does a med work great for a week or two and then stop???????
would love to hear any input....
