My GI doctor did anoscopy, said I have proctitis. But she didn't find anything except hemorrhoids in the colon when she did colonoscopy. The biopsy report said the biopsy is consistent with proctitis. I have all the signs of proctitis: mucus, blood, gas, bloating,urgencey etc.
Do I have proctitis? Can hemorrhoids cause these problems? Thank you all!

Hi you have a copy of the report? If so, can you post exactly what it says?

Proctitis is a general term for inflammation in the rectum. Did the doctor say the cause?

The fact you have bleeding with mucus, gas, bloating and urgency doesn't say it's only hemorrhoids. I would say that's a separate issue, but happening because of the inflammation in the rectum.

You have proctitis....yes....but what kind and from what? did the doctor say?

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