Don't take this the wrong way, but I think you have more of a problem with anxiety than UC at the moment. You shouldn't be feeling like a hostage to a stool test if your symptoms are good. I'm not intending to guilt-trip but if I was in your position, symptom-wise, I wouldn't give a crap what my FC was to be quite honest. (But it's 1338, if you're interested <_<.)
As far as lowering doses is concerned, mesalazine is a safe drug so there's no rush. You could stay on those doses indefinitely and it wouldn't harm you. I can understand why people would want to cut back on the rectal meds, but I can't see much point in dropping from 4g to 2g oral mesalazine - maybe somebody else can explain the point of it.
