Hi everyone, hope you are all well.
My son remains symptom free, probably best part of 3 months now, thanks to the rectal meds. Firstly enemas, then enemas and suppositories, now just suppositories. This is the best he has been however, I have the following query, he seems a bit constipated, not any pain, no discomfort however, maybe 1x stool every couple of days. Is this ok? Is there any advice on diet, to perhaps change it slightly?
On another note, I cant help but feel as soon as he stops the suppositories the blood will come back (I think its paranoia with this frustrating disease). I don't feel comfortable in tapering just yet either. The suppositories don't bother him, he takes them himself effortlessly - could it be he just stays on these indefinitely? Should I request this to the doctor. The doctor seems to be wanting to taper him off them, its annoying as he just wants oral for maintenance. From my research and advice on here, my sons inflammation is rectal so why not have a rectal maintenance med??
Anyways, just an update, all is generally well
