Most absolutely it IS flare related....albeit healing at this point. Please request enough refills for continued nightly and then tapering to maintenance.
I suggest pushing for continued follow up and enemas for maintenance.
Your son can try stool softeners if his stool is hard, plus starting fibre supplements with meals will help peristalsis, soften and bulk stool for easier passage through a cantankerous rectum 😁
Tell your son to remember this phase, for when he's in remission (while hopefully on maintenance rectals), this will be a symptom of flaring (mildly and/or very limited). That's the time to start increasing enemas to nightly...although don't wait 3 weeks to do so.
Keep us updated on how it goes tomorrow.
