Re: Ulcerative Colitis Flare-Up
Hi, I have UC and Crohn's disease. I have dealt with this for over 20 yrs. I have recently been in a very bad flare up. After many visits to my gastro dr and many weeks of pain and missed work, I went to a top specialist and he prescribed hydrocortisone enemas. It doesn't react like your typical enema. It coats the rectum and colon with medication and helps to reduce the inflammation quickly. I also lost 20 lbs. and had no appetite. Every time I ate I was running to the bathroom. I have been using these enemas for 10 days and I feel so much better. I hope this info helps and that your wife is feeling better. I also am on the antibiotic cipro and a drug called imuran.
