I had a balloon dilation of my anastamosis 2 weeks ago and I still have pain at the dilation site. GI said the anastamosis was about 1/2 inch or an inch long. This is the 2nd dilation I've had of my anastamosis, the first was 3 years ago and I don't recall any pain with it. This time around I still have pain after 2 weeks. I'm taking a low dose of prednisone with asacol. Any thoughts at all? I'm just surprised it still hurts after 2 weeks, but perhaps I should not be surprised. Anyone else ever have a dilation, can we compare notes?
