It's definitely preference. The foam would be easier to retain than a liquid, especially if using it twice a day.
The 5ASA retention enemas would be your best bet to increase you from what you're already using since you have no problem with 5ASA meds....but you could be using both.....the 5ASA at night and the steroid foam in the mornings.
Don't lay on the floor....lay in your bed and it's best to stay there for about
a half hour if using the liquids considering where the inflammation is.
During your holidays....If you opt for the steroid foam enemas...I would think that you could do pb4's routine..no one would be the wiser and the comfort level would be optimal for during the day.
