I have proctitis but I have been able to manage it with suppositories and Asacol. I have heard the rectum is the last to heal and the hardest to heal. I know how frustrating it can be. I was in a flare for well over a year with no signs of remission. I was able to manage with suppositories when i was first diagnosed but I couldn't afford them and I didn't know about
the patient assistance program, I ended up not using them regularly followed by a horrible flare. That is when I had to get on oral meds. I wish I had continued the suppositories, maybe I wouldn't need the oral medication now. That's in the past though, I am now doing well on Asacol and Canasa. Asacol helped me within a few days or weeks. How long have you been using the drugs? I still get D here and there but I am not a salve to the toilet anymore. I hope you find something that helps. I think this disease requires some trial and error, different treatments help each individual. There is no miracle cure and it seems like sometimes different flares require different treatments.
