    Morning Carole1122

    Proctitis is linked with ulcerative colitis it's the inflammation in the rectum I had mine for 11 years which was controlled with pentasa.

    I wish you all the best if you have any questions just shout 😉

    Hi Carole - I'm also a UC sufferer. Proctitis only effects the anus and lower part of the bowel & anus. It is often very painful. Although I have felt dreadful at times I never had this sort of pain or Proctitis. Why? I honestly don't know. Good luck with your treatment.

    Proctitis is refering to the area of the bowel that is inflamed and ulcerated. I have found that topical treatments releave the symptoms a bit. The mail thing that has brought me back into remission is de-stressing my life , exercise  and switching to de-caffinated drinks.

    Hi Carole

    My undstanding is that when UC affects just the rectum, it is known as 'proctitis'.

    I wish you well with your treatment and hope you don't have too much discomfort.

    With all good wishes,
