Mad Martha, I am currently doing hydrocorisone enema been on them for almost 21 days (tuesday will be the day I start alternating days on it) and balzalazide for 18 days and I do feel better and I do not have any blood right now, but after one week of both i was still seeing blood and called doctor because they originally wanted me to only do the hydro for 5 days at night and then start alternating so when i did start alternating I saw blood again. So I do think maybe you should give it a little more time, a little less blood is good, but you should also ask for the mesalamine enemas to alternate with the predfoam maybe do them in the am. I am not sure what predfoam is, but if is like the corifoam enemas we have in the us it did not seem to help me on my second flare because i suspect it wasn't getting up high enough, I do have protosigmoidtitis. I also maybe did not give them enough time to work, I also want immediate results and am just that way with everything i do.
I am so hoping to keep this stupid disease away for my upcoming trip to aruba next Saturday for two weeks.
My husband is so good because I told him that I am scared that I will get sick while in Aruba, and he said then we will come home, so don't worry.
Thats the thing, it is constantly on my mind, all I think about, morning and night and it is exhausting. I always worry in the morning when I go to the bathroom what will be there and am so scared to stand up to look.
Hope you feel better real soon, and I want to add that I do take clonipin for nighttime anxiety and sleep.
5 mg. and I only take a piece of that and it helps me to relax. But the daytime, I am on my own with the anxiety of this and all the stresses of the day.
I seem to have a lot more gas of late also, don't know if its the new pills (balzalzide) or the hydrocoritsone enema or the mesalamine enema I use.
I know its easier said than done but try to relax.
