Yes: First need to confirm this is the only area of involvement. Then Canasa suppositories or Rowasa (mesalamine) enemas along with oral Mesalamine med should resolve in most cases.This should be followed by a GI doctor or colorectal surgeon for recurrence and maintenance therapy as well as cancer screening.
