I have been going thru the worst "bum pain" ever lately. My colon and rectal surgeon gave me a cream called Calmoseptine (sp?) and it is MAGIC!!! I have tried everything out there and this truely works the best. It is a bit messy- but when the pain gets so bad you can hardly walk and you are basicly paralized after a BM, messy isn't a big deal...lol. My surgeon also told me I was too clean. He told me to not use any kind of wet wipes and to just use a warm washcloth to clean the area- no harsh soaps either.
Hope this helps!!
I am a 29 yo female, Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa, imuran, VSP
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hospital stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis which was awful!!
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
