Thanks all. It's morning here in Australia and I just had a non-eventful morning BM with no blood so it must have healed up overnight. I've actually got some hydrocortisone cream at home - can't believe I didn't think of using that. I'll also get some diaper rash cream in stock in case this happens again.
Princess Colon - I'm using the Salofalk foam for maintenance while I'm in remission as it is a 5ASA foam. I certainly do hit the Cortifoam if I am flaring. There was an article that someone posted a little while back on 5ASA responders/non-responders and it said that, for left sided UC, the combination of oral 5ASA and as little as 2 5ASA enemas a week really helped keep people in remission. I've giving that a go with 2 lots of foam 5ASA enemas a week. Working very well so far, except for the stabbing injury!
Quincy - don't worry, this has not discouraged me from using the foam at all. I love rectal meds!
Beth - I'll have to remember angling it forward a little. I think I do normally do that with the liquid enemas but obviously haven't carried that over to the foam ones.
Thanks again all
