Hi...welcome to the forum.
It's awesome you were able to get in with the GI so quickly. Was it he who did the colonoscopy? Huge kudos for him to put you on 5ASA meds initially rather than prednisone...really!
You're doing the enemas nightly? What dosage of oral Salofalk are you on?
Hang tough...it takes a while for the emotional/mental aspect of being newly diagnosed. Since you're starting to feel better already, it's a good sign. Keep us posted as to how you're doing....and do remember that you have to taper the enemas once you are "normal". I can make suggestions when you're ready to do so. Please don't stop them cold turkey.
Do you have enough refills for them?...especially with the holiday season aproaching
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 4th night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
