Hi, new here ( 53 year old ) and wondering if I could get some advice.
Was dx with Ulcerative Proctitis in 2010 ...after a year or so, pretty much remission. Lialda 2.4mg daily and canasa needed.
Recently broke my arm ( May) and was taking Aleve more than I ever had before . Noticed about August, some specks of blood, MD thought hemorrhoid, but I knew about 2 weeks in that it was a flare ( only going 2-3 times/ day, but blood noticed on and off ) So upped my Lialda and restarted Canasa twice a day . Went for my scheduled colonoscopy today and he said that the in the past the inflammation went from 0-25 cm, but today he said nothing seen from 0-19, only mild inflammation from 19-25 cm. He thinks that the canasa took care of the proctitis part but doesn't reach the higher area.
So he said to continue to up the Lialda to 4.8 mg /day and that I could start Rowasa if I wanted.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
I was thinking of restarting VSL probiotics? I haven't had a flare in a while so I want to try to be vigilant and get it under control if I can.
Of course no more aleve, switched back to tea, no coffee,.,etc..
thanks in advance.
