I am sorry to see you back. I think you're on the right path with the options you're trying. It's all relatively mild options, you could hit it much harder with prednisone, or even steroid enemas if it comes to that. I think I would definitely add enemas if I were in your shoes, mesalamine for sure, but I would also consider Uceris foam, steroid enemas or cortifoam. There are a lot of options for you & am I sure you will get it under control quickly. it sounds like you've responded well to medication in the past, and you were stable on low doses, try not to worry, but you do need to be patient. Have you had stool tests to check for c diff and pathogens? Antibiotics and hospital stays can make you susceptible to these things.
