I am wondering if I actually hurt my rectum when I jabbed it with the tip of my enema tip a few nights ago when my fingers slipped off the bottle when I was trying to dispense it (darn generic bottle). It feels like it is throbbing a little and hurts when I used my Rowasa the past 2 nights - a feeling I have never had in the 7 years of dealing with UC. It also leaves a very full feeling when I use the Rowasa and last night I had to release it after 10 minutes of putting it in - something I haven't had to do in ages.
Is it possible to have torn something in there?
