Well, you still could be a mild case......I am pretty new here, but have read a ton of posts and it seems to get repeated over and over that the rectum is a stubborn area to heal. AndI assume since you are seeing blood and using enemas, that your inflammation is lower right now? mine is, too and mucus and blood are my main symptoms.
It took 3 months of enemas now for me to stop seeing mucus. And even so, I have seen blood about once or twice a week for the past 2 weeks.
I just think this is a slow process. Maybe because as we heal, the still roughs things up again on it's way out?
I better stop speculating....but I would definitely think remaining calm and optimistic is warranted. Plus, it's fantastic that your appointment is right around the corner, too. It's tough to do sometimes, but worrying and anxiety aren't our friends.
