I saw the colorectal surgeon yesterday and he told me that the acute fissure started to heal but that dull stabbing pain in my rectum is due to proctitis. So, I have to take metronidazole suppositories for 5 days ( more than that would cause me nonstop vomiting and I asked him to take zofran 8mg injections if vomiting hits). He and my GI agreed that if I can tolerate pentasa suppositories I have to take them instead of the enemas. If not, then it is enough that I take pentasa sachets 4g.
Things went fine yesterday and I could tolerate the suppository. However, I'm thinking of increasing the number of pentasa suppositories as I feel that this dull pain won't be relieved easily. I take 1g before bed time and the 4g oral ones.
Of course, I won't do it w/o referring to the surgeon but is it negotiable?
