I have a painful rectal ulcer, and I am on citrocel and three stool softeners every day. I have been on Canasa for two months with no improvement. Even with all the stool softeners, my bowel movements hurt like crazy, but I am having a bowel movement every day (thank goodness). But as I said, they are hard, and it hurts really bad, sometimes the ulcer bleeds. Do you guys think I should ask my doctor for Amitiza to hopefully have softer stools (less rectal pain?)?
