I saw this when you first posted it and was going to reply and didn't. Then I was admitted to the hospital and had to stay for a while. Before I went to the hospital I was under the impression I had proctitis, because that was my diagnosis last January after a colonoscopy. During my hospital stay, I had another colonoscopy that revealed I have pancolitis (entire colon inflammed). So my question to you is - have you had a recent colonoscopy to see if you really have only 3-5 cm of inflammation? I was using rectal meds, but obviously that wasn't enough since the inflammation had spread since my last colonoscopy. I don't want to scare you by suggesting that your inflammation has spread, but its something to think about
if your current rectal meds aren't getting the job done.
Good luck and I hope you find some relief soon!
