I had been doing great. Up until middle of February. I thought I had pouchitis. Long store short. After researching I believe I have cuffitis. The doctor called in Proctofoam HC. Wow I don't care for it at all. Puts air bubbles in the rectum. But I did find relief. I didn't realize it's only a 5 day supply for me. I have left over suppositories so I use daily that last night. It helped but this morning I'm going right back down hill. I go to my GI Dr on Tuesday. What I'd like to know is what can they do for cuffitis and should I ask for the cream instead to use rectal? ( Cream being just hydrocortisone).
I want to be prepared when I go Tuesday. Also I hate putting medicine in rectum. It hurt s so bad. I do use a lube but still hurts so bad. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
First surgery 1/27/12 removed colon for precancerous cells. Found out the same time I had the precancerous cells I had UC. Take down was 3/16/12. So not much was done with my UC because I had to have colon removed.
