I either feel like some one shoved rocks up my rear, or that my last rectal exam was done by Freddie Kruger. Any suggestions?
I don't know quite what to say about this except that I always have an awareness, if you will, of my anal area. It's not pain or discomfort, itching or irritation--just an awareness at all times. It's strange, but I'm used to it now. I'm sure you are still in healing mode--things will get better with time.
LMBO (and I wish I COULD) I am always "aware" of my anus. But lately it feels like it is either full of rocks or someone took a razor blade to it. It is not an all day thing (most of time thank goodness!) but around 3pm, like clockwork, it starts hurting. I feel like have a rock up my bum, then comes that lovely feeling of razor cuts (think paper cuts) all around the area, inside and out. I can't take aleve, ibuprophen or anything will actually reduce the inflammation because of my heart. I just went back to taking my Percocet to get to a "bearable" point. I am so tired of this! My last CT showed thickening of the intestines which means they are inflamed. I am on a low residue diet so I have no idea what could have inflamed them except the radiation I went through 6 months ago. I was put on a steriod burst because the intestinal pain was so bad I couldn't laugh, cry, cough or walk without pain. It worked for all of 3 days. I am just so frustrated. I want my life back!
