Sorry to hear about
your current flare. I am kind of in the same situation, I have been dealing with proctitis for a long time and it's gotten worse recently. I have been treating it with a few meds and lately I have had improvements in my BMs and my gasiness. I think the goal is to reduce the inflammation and to help us feel better. Please try not to get stressed. You will get some answers soon and I am sure there will be some treatment options available. This is a great place to vent, we all understand your frustration.
Diagnosed with proctitis in March 2007 - Treated with Canasa 2x Daily
