Hi...definitely make sure you're drinking enough fluids throughout the day....keep up the fibre supplements. What are you using.
Now, your meds....what exactly are you on at this time?
With low in the rectum inflammation, constipation is a symptoms....you have a bit of ways to go, so hopefully, you're still on rectal meds.
I would also suggest you eat enough foods, maybe consider digestive enzymes when you eat and possibly a stool softener just while the lower part of the rectum in healing.
It's great you're on the way to healing this flare.....it's all part of the process, which basically can suck with different symptoms and more discomfort.
I agree with Red and the suggestion of dicyclomine to help with some of the spasming.
Some foods can increase your symptoms of gas and discomfort....increase salad and some fruit intake that will help soften the stool....I find bananas give me incredible gas, and if I have them...it's late in the evening.
What do you drink for fluids during the day?
