Hello,
 
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? 
 
thanks,
Mark
