Rowasa enemas or the suppositories?
The fact that you have some inflammation and gastritis shouldn't necessarily mean you need to wait for symptoms.
It would be good to have a plan set into motion regarding meds...such as oral and rectal 5ASA meds to help prevent the UC from getting worse/spreading. Sometimes we just don't feel as bad as it can look internally. 5ASA (oral and rectal) is used for treatment and tapered to maintenance.
When's your appointment for the follow-up? When was your colonoscopy?
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
