My colorectal surgeon prescribed Colazal (a bowel anti-inflammatory generally used in ulcerative colitis) to treat pain and anal inflammation after radiation therapy. She felt I had a bit of radiation proctitis. My symptoms at 6 months post treatment: I have occasional bleeding when constipated, mucus discharge a few times a week in small amounts and some internal stinging pain and internal itching at times. Do you have internal itching at all?? And the skin around my anus is like plastic now ... no more peri-anal hair. Is this what your peri-anal area is like? The meds seem to be working or I'm healing as normal in spite of the med.

Is anyone else on this medication? Just curious and if you are, what is your experience with it; working not working? Thanks ...
