HISTORY- I was diagnosed with UC in 2008 from my return from Iraq. My UC remained uncontrollable for two years. During my 2nd remicade treatment it was discovered that the UC spread to both sides and all the way up to the sigmoid. So I had a total colonectomy in June 2010 the a J-pouch in September 2010. This past Monday I just had my Ileostomy take down.

I just had my Ileostomy take down this past Monday. As others did, I have had multiple BMs per day. But I am experiencing severe pain in the rectum location. The best way to explain it is as a muscle spasm that is both sharp and burning. That pain is so bad that it will not allow me to evacuate my bladder so i now have a CATH in. This pain is caused by anything moving through the intestine to include gas. The Doc has me on all kinds of pain meds but it dose nothing for rectum pain. Dose anyone have any advice?
