Hi all! I am 9 months past take down. I had a scope November 5th. Doc said pouch looked good but I do have cuffitis. He prescribed canasa suppositories 2x day. I am not feeling better and also am having leakage (small amount but I wear a pad). The leakage is during the day. I work from home but am sitting a lot at the computer. Any suggestions? Is the leakage normal with cuffitis? I'm tired of feeling sore at this point, and just want to get to a normal life.

I wonder if you could use a cortisone foam - I used that when I had rectal inflammation.
Canasa can take a while to work. One thing you could discuss with your doctor is adding a short course of a steroid, to get the cuff inflammation under control. Then the Canasa would hopefully keep things calm instead of having to calm things down in the first place. Good luck!
I thought about the steroid. I'm just miserable and suspect I've had this issue for awhile. Thanks for the feedback.
For me - the steroid knocked it out quickly - but some of it does absorb in the system. But maybe you can knock it down with the steroid and control it with the Canasa.
