Re: Uncontrolled UC Flare Up
Hi...where in the colon is your UC located...throughout or limited?
I would suggest you at the very least start rectal medications...mesalamine retention enemas are what could be a good option for now.
I've been on oral/rectal mesalamine for almost 22 years. I've never been on pred or the immuno meds.
The enemas should be used till your flare is over and then tapered to a maintenance dosage. Has the doctor never suggested them to you?
It's all a matter of perspective!
