The c-scope was almost 2 years ago. Since then a constant flare. Yes, the rectal meds are the only thing that stops the bleeding for me. The oral helps with the left side pain and some less urgency, but the rectal stops the bleeding. I did start taking them 2 days ago. I realized too, that one of the supplements I'm taking has a laxative effect. Good to know 2 weeks after a sore bum!
