I choose and recieved seeding for low grade prostate cancer in September 2011. This January (2013) I noticed some blood in my stools. A colonoscopy confirmed that the problem was radiation procititis. My oncologists has me using cortosteriod (Anucort 25 mg Rectal suppositories). I am not able completley stop the problem. I think I am about to get it under control and then it starts up. I do not seem to be able to find any specific "cures" for this problem. How long the problem can persist? Or, more importantly, what do I look for that indicates I need a higher level of treatment. That is, intervention on the inside of the rectum through vessesl abulation.
