... hydrocortizone (supp,) then switched to cortifoam, then antibiotocs because c-diff seemed to set in. Now Lialda during the day and Messalamine enema @ night. Going for a 2nd scope 6/22 (1st was 2/5/10 - life hasn't been the same since.) Blood is constant. Can't pass gas unless I'm sitting cause there is ALWAYS liquid. Any suggestions on treatment that works?
This link may help - see the support group link at the bottom.
All the best.
WOW, I hope this helps my Friend. I have Microscopic Colitis, Proctitis, and had a rectal prolapse. I currently take but am switching GI DRs in December and will post update.
have you tried Opium Tincture with Entocort? This isn't Great but has given me back some sort of life.
OPIUM TINCTURE bc Paregoric is being Discontinued
also daily I take lomitil and pepto
Team, I have seen responses in here and been reading them and forgot that I never told everyone what worked for me. Lialda - oral mesalamine. Stopped my problem. I took it for over a year and 1/2. Stopped about a month ago to see if things will remain good. No relapses to date. LIALDA!!! ~toph~
I have radiation proctitis. I went through the hydrocortizone supp., etc. I had allots of bleeding for approx. 15 months. I finally was referred to a gastroenterologist out of town who did the argon laser coagulation procedure on me. I have not had any bleeding since. All of the supp., proctofoam etc. was only treating it cosmetically.
I have been on salofalk suppositories for years and it kept it at bay. The gastro decided to move me to Mezavant oral and for me that has been a nightmare. I had/have the worst gas pains, bleeding, chills and bathroom ever. I have been on prednisone for the first time ever, for 3 weeks now. It is helping but not nearly as quickly as I thought. Wouldn't you know my gastro is on holidays! What can they give you after if you can't tolerate Mezavant? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
