I had an ileostomy reversal in September 2008. At first all was okay. Now I have this awful pressure on my rectum yet a stool will not pass unless I strain and push.( I've taken stool softeners) The problem with that is once a stool has passed I usually go 5 to 8 times in an hours time. This causes severe pain to my rectum. I have used PrepH w/pain relief,cortizone ointment,neosporin w/pain relief this has been a problem since March of this year.

Before I had my anal fissure surgery I found an over the counter med called NUPERCAINAL! It has a numbing agent in it and was the best med I had ever used for rectal pain. I got it from the pharmacy but you don't need a prescription. Hope this helps, Tracy

I can totally sympathize with you.  I had a total colectomy for colon inertia 4 months ago, and I have the same problem.  I see my surgeon on Thursday.  about 2 hours after I eat, I get that terrible pressure/pain and I just can't go.  I drink grape or prune juice after dinner and finally go, but I'll go several times with diarrhea all evening.  the pain is horrible, especially before I can go.  Suppositories help some, but are very painful.  I know I have pelvic floor  problems, so I'm assuming that's the reason I have this trouble.
Tracy, thanks for the advice about nupercainal.  I'll definitely try it!
