I've suffered from proctitis for years. I'm a Crohnie w proctitis. I don't want to say this but mine is even resistant to Remicade. I use colifoam enema and pentasa suppositories when in severe pain. Cortiment (budesonide) lessened the number of flare ups but not as both me and my doctor have hoped it would. This is not to discourage you. We differ in our response to meds.
Good luck w your colonoscopy
