I'm a new member.  I've been reading all the posts this morning about everyone's situations, and found all the information interesting.  I  have been on Budesonide enemas for around 5 years.  I have moderate pan colitis. My GI has been bringing up the topic of 6mp for the last 2 yrs, but just am too scared to try.  I get pancreatitis from the mesalamine drugs, so they are not an option.  I know that the enemas only cover the left side, however,  I have around 2 to 3 three semi formed bowel movements a day.  I consider the enema to be helpful in living a productive life, as much as can be expected of a person with uc and spondylarthropathy(arthritis associated with uc).  If anyone has been on this kind of enema for long term, then I sure would like to here from you about your experience.  I was interested in hearing about any potential side effects..I have not really experienced any side effects yet--like a swollen face, etc.  Thank you in advance
