Hello and happy new year everyone!
I’m on salafalk enemas every other day. Been doing this for about 2 weeks after being on them daily for a month after my UC started to simmer and mildly flare. Still on salafalk tablets as I have been for years.
I have had a couple blips due to my period ( where I get a bit of looser stools and perhaps an incease from 1 to 2 BM a day) and a tummy virus that went through the house where I had loose stool a day or two but just once a day.
I’m monitoring my stools at the everyother day on enemas to make sure I’m all good. I’ll stay like this for at least a month.
My question: I find that I can’t get the air out of the enema before I use it and so I have excess uncomfortable gas after I use. Then those mornings, some of my stool floats because I’m sure it’s full of air. What is the trick?
Also, what should I be looking for this month so I can go to maintenance of every 3rd day of ememas?
Thank you so much all!
