Hi, I have anal stenosis and was diagnosed based on my surgeon's examination and didn't have any colonoscopies for that. My last colonscopy was last july. I'm mentioning this as I'm not quite sure of my problem. I, too, can hardly pass stool and have to take glycerin suppositories. I asked my doc about dilation but he refused performing any procedures. His rationale is that if it's inflammation, and not scarring as the surgeon said, it will become worse. I already have proctitis but can't insert any medicinal enemas, so my doc suggested that I can use glycerin suppositories as many as I'd like, take Daflon 500 which increases blood flow to this area, apply creams in the rectum,have sitz baths, and take steroid suppositories to relieve any congestion. Then, I can take either pentasa enema or budesonide enema. My surgeon has also mentioned that removing my colon might be the solution but the GI refuses any talk about this issue. I'm just wondering that both Remicade and Humira are effective in treating intestinal strictures, can't they be used for the rectal one?
Hope you feel better soon:)
