Hi, this is my first post though I have been reading for a while. I have had UC for 9 years with bouts of flaring then remission. When I was diagnosed I was told it was in the rectum and I always responded to suppositories or enemas. My latest flare started 5 months ago and my c-scope showed it being in the rectum but about 5 inches into the intestines as well. I as given Asacol 400 MG three times a day as well as enemas. After using the enema I stopped seeing blood and within a few weeks was completely normal again. I was tapering off the enemas first for 6 weeks every other night which went well. After a month of taperting two nights off and one on the flare came back worse then ever. The Dr. put me back on enamas every night and it’s been 10 days I am still doing terrible. Does anyone have any suggestions or what I should try next? I have a Drs. Appt next week but she’s going to have to try something different I think.
p.s. I was so glad to find this forum
