Hi...the rectum, especially the lower part of the rectum, is the most difficult and of course the last part to heal.
Considering you're still going 5 times a day, you should consider to use the Canasa twice a day...that should help the rectal feelings.
Oh, and I would still strongly suggest you ask for an antispasmodic...dicyclomine is very good...start at the 10mg...but it can have you feeling a bit mellow.
Are you still on psyllium

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
