ok, i have to vent. i was on cloud 9 due to good report after colonoscopy . also not much pain. BUT 2 days later , i got a rip with bleeding in the anal area after BM and now i am suffering, nervous, upset and scared. i have to have a proctoscope in 2 weeks and i know i will not heal up by then. i hate this disease. every time i get better, something happens. i am at 25 months post tx and i still have to work all around this mess.(as we all do) .... supposed to go to the LSU game at Cowboys stadium this saturday and now probably will stay in the hotel due to pain, bleeding and etc due to the drive and sitting, bath room issues. oh well, at lease i am alive, I guess??? sephie

I think it's probably happened to all of us. I see my colorectal doc on Thursday for my 3-month check and what happened yesterday? I had a BM with bleeding. I am trying not to be upset by this, but it's difficult. I hope you heal quickly!

Please go to that game, don't let this ruin your fun. The anal area takes time to heal, and we use it everyday. My gyno prescribed estrace to help strengthen both the vaginal area and anal area and not to be used internally. I had a tear in my perineum at 2 years post tx and it is healing with a cream 600 times stronger than cortisone. It had tore because it was taut from being shrunk and burned via radiation. Call your dr and see what you can do to help heal this. I wish you well. Lori

It is clobetasol propionate ointment, usp, 0.05%, which I use on the perineum tear. This is a prescription, and you have to have your dr appove it for your anal tear.

Becareful with the colbetasol (?) My gyn gave me a rx and stressed instructions. You kind of have to taper off the usage (times used) and can not use it for extended period of time. Apparently it can have a rebound effect if over used. She really stressed the usage instructions. But it worked great. And yes sephie ...celebrate life. We all got another chance. Even if it is a pain in the a%$ sometimes.

So sorry to hear about your pain; I think we have all had those challenges, where something happens to pull us down. I would be sure to comminicate with your doctor about your symptoms; he might suggest you not have an exam until you are healed.

Thinking of you; know that the setback is just temporary, and more healing is on the way.
