How were you diagnosed? Scope? what did the scope show? I don't think with chronic IBD the goal is to get you off meds, the goal is to get you to the lowest dose that keeps you stable. I think it's great if a supp every few days keeps you at 100% forever, but often that isn't the case, not to say it won't be for you, and i hope it is. But please don't think you're ahead of it and be without medication in your arsenal. This illness can be very easy, or it can be very difficult. I hope yours is easy. I've not had too much experience with cipro, I've taken it here and there, and if it works for you, great, usually that would indicate something bacterial. I've never had it happen where I was cured from antibiotics, it's always been temporary, to the point, I needed o find something else to keep me stable after i completed a course, almost liek steroids, but that's just my experience. you should go to an IBD specialist and see what they say. I went to a regular GI for years, but a IBD GI can provide a lot more insight on the situation. It's their specialty and their area of interest.
