Hey guys,

Unfortunately I had a bad new years, hopefully everyone else had a great one! I had a slice of pizza before the new years celebration, usually I can have pizza without it bothering me surprisingly. I went to a different pizzeria though to try them out and boy that was a mistake. Right now I have so much pain when I have a bowel movement in my rectum. I've had this before but this is extremely bad. It's like a burning sensation and feels like there's a lot of pressure. Has anyone experienced this before, and if so what did you do to relieve the pain? Thank you so much and Happy New Years!

I had some kind of clotted hemorrhoid that was causing extreme pain. The surgeon said he could lance it if it came back.

Sometimes scrapey fibre on inflamed tissue can be extremely painful too.

I think I have something like that. I have this weird bump by my anus that sometimes bleeds and actually gets gas in it sometimes. It gets smaller and bigger sometimes. Usually when I'm feeling well it'll be almost gone, but then when I'm in a bad flare it'll get extremely large and tender. Was yours like that?

are you on rectal meds? Sounds like inflammation plus a hemmie (either internal or external) or / and fissure.

it's not the food/drink...although food makes poo.

bosnianboy,

My nasty clotted hemmie came into being after I had a long period of constipation which led to a lot of pressure when having a BM. There was some bright red blood at times during a BM, but mostly extreme pain when stool passed over it.

I just happened to have a consultation with a colo-rectal surgeon when I had it, and he scoped the hemmies and noticed what he called a thrombosis (blood vessel with a clot in it). He said that was the source of the pain, but he also said it was unusual and hemmies don't usually cause such pain.

Without him doing a scope and actually seeing it (since it was internal), I would never have been able to tell if the pain was U.C. related or caused by a hemmie. At the time I also had pretty severe inflammation in the lower part of the rectum which made things worse.

Are you having any other noticable U.C. symptoms like urgency, mucous, tenesmus or going a lot?

Yeah I'm in a fairly bad flare right now. It's been really rough since April of 2009. I've been flaring up pretty consistently since then, with some breaks for about a week then right back into the flare. Remicade has stopped working, it helps a little bit but nothing significant. I don't respond to any medicines to be honest, but I don't have time for surgery right now nor do I want to get the surgery. I know some will say I should do it, but I can't right now. I have more mucus than blood but my stools are never really formed. I haven't had a fully formed still since I've been diagnosed in 2003. I'm close to the breaking point to be honest.

so, are rectal meds taboo to ask about?

Suffering with it without real remission since 2003 is an awfully long time to have to deal with it. There are a lot of variations of steroids and mesalamine (enemas, suppositories, foams, tablets, granules, etc.). Have you really tried all of them? Sometimes one works when the others don't... you just never know.

Quincy sorry Yeah I've tried rectal meds. They did nothing for me. I did the cortenemas. They only make me feel better in the morning then I feel like crap again in the afternoon even after taking them for about a month. I've done steroids as well but they don't put me in remission. I can't take 5ASA meds because they cause me to have pancreatitis. I've had so many medicines fail for me it's unfortunate. The only thing that worked for me was 6MP with Remicade but the fear of cancer got the best of me. I had lymph nodes showing up everywhere, it was quite scary so as soon as I stopped the 6MP back in April of 09, it's been hell for me. Haven't really had a normal day. It's quite frustrating. I don't have time for surgery nor do I want o get it because even with surgery I would still go around 4 times a day for the rest of my life. I'm not going to take that chance when something might come out eventually. I just wish they would do more research towards colitis because I'm sick of having a life revolving around Colitis. You know how it is, always worried about where the nearest bathroom is. It sucks at 20 years old you know. I'm a college student and I just want to have fun. I'm too young for this -____- It feels good to vent sometimes!

Venting is good. Maybe create a signature so that we don't keep asking you the same questions...rectal meds are my questions always..lol.

If I were you....surgery would be next on my list. I'd also never do the pred or remi...so you're way ahead of me already before the surgery.

I've always had 5ASA meds, oral/rectal, as a successful treatment, and would be in an absolute distressed state if they didn't work. I'd rather my colon out than the big-gun meds...and as for pred...no, not unless it was a quick taper. But, to what end? with what I see, it never ends there.

Reconsider...do the homework and reevaluate your life at 20.

In saying all of the above have you exhausted all the food-related diets?

I've tried everything. All kinds of diets. My immune system is a crack head I swear. I'm not doing surgery though, not at 20 years old. I can't have that right now. I feel like surgery to me is giving up, that's just my opinion though. I'm sure surgery has helped many people out there, but I'm not doing that now. I can't while I'm in college, but I'm not going to give up yet. No matter how hard it gets, I'm going to get through this. I know they'll come out with something sooner or later. I did have a signature but I don't know what happened to it. It doesn't show anymore.

Regarding your suffering...you being 20 is why I'm suggesting it.
You'll reach your quitting point eventually.

Hope you get some relief!
