shocked I need help! I so don't want to go into Emerge. But something tells me I'm going to have to tomorrow.
I have adhesions or whatever inside my rectum. They have bothered me before from time to time, but I think its a battle that I am slowly loosing! It seems to be getting worse. I am starting to avoid eating and that's not good. Can anyone relate?
I so don't want to get a temp. ostomy. I am afraid that is what the doctors are going to tell me.
If only there was something else that I could try. I have been using zinc oxide cream & 2% xylocain jelly. i am squirming around like a wierdo, I can't sit still. I hate this so much. It dosen't matter what I eat, it all has to come out in the end and that's the problem.
My rectum can't heal. i keep thinking that I need iron infusions again cause i haven't had iron since november.
I am anemic, and i get my blood checked once a mth. They say its low but not that low.

I have a good job now, just started - and I don't want to loose it. I hate this disease so much. It seems to always break me down when things start to get good. I can't win.

What should I do? Why is life so unfair?

Could you possibly have a fissure? Thats like a small cut inside your rectum that gets torn and irritated everytime you go. I haven't had one, but heard they are like razor blades cutting you each time. Just a thought.

Have they ever given you proctocream, protosol, or any other cortisone rectal cream? I had five fissures and raging internal and external hemorrhoids. The Proctosol and the lidocaine jelly really helped. I can't see why the cortisone ointments wouldn't help reduce the inflammation in your bottom. These creams come with a short applicator that you affix to the tube and insert into the rectum. That way the ointment gets to the intended area.

Yes I have been perscribed many creams & jellies ... The specialist that I have now says steroids are really bad and not the way to go.
Being that I have been fighting this for a very very long time there is really no other option for me out there.
Its kinda like a visious circle - you put it on - it goes away for awhile - then you go to the toilet several times - then it hurts again - then you put it on again - and so on and so on... over and over....
Some of the creams that i have tired burned me way too much for me to use - they were too strong and just not good, it made it worse.

i still think that my lack of iron or that I am anemic has something to do with it.... One doctor in ER said to me once that your body needs iron in order to help the healing process. Its necessary. And I know my iron is low so I am going to discuss that with my specialist next visit.
Meanwhile I will try and hold my head high and hope for the best.
