Radiation proctitis

I had a hysterectomy in 2003, a recurrence in 2004 that required chemo and radiation, internal and external. Radiation proctitis is a result of the radiation burning the lining in the rectum since the rectum and vagina are so close. It is extremely painful. I am presently using Canasa suppositories and they only help occasionally. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if so, do u have any pointers for me?

My rectal area was severely itchy!! i finally looked down there and seen that i had a burn..ouch! Nothing worked for me at all and i tried alot of different things..The one thing that did helped a wee bit was vaseline or babies bum cream lol....I have a 8mth old so i figured i would give it a try

Good luck! i see this was posted a few weeks ago, so i hope u found something
