I would first find a new GI that you are comfortable with. I waited almost 2 months to see my GI and I absolutly love her.
Second, I tried asacol and pentasa and asacol worked for me but made me so tired and gave me blisters on my lips, but it worked. I started pentasa and it made me sick with diarreah. Now I'm on Colozal and it's working for me. I have no complaints that are major with it. You have to see what works for you and keep trying. I'm so scared to take medication, but I had to get strong and say my body needs this to get well. I needed help and medication is the only thing that has worked for me. I take Canasa as needed and that helps a lot too with bleeding.
I had the Rocephin shot and 2 weeks of Omnicef, this helped with my bloating and digestion. That was 4/15/07
Had Cipro and Predison for 10 & 5 days, 7/3/07
Colonoscopy & Endoscopy 7/27, Left sided colitis and near cecum (mild)
Colozal 6 a day
Canasa when needed
Floriva Multi-I try to take every day
VSL#3-I try to take one sachet pack every day
