Hi guys. I was diagnosed with proctitis 12/13 years ago and was extremely ill with it. Since then I've had small flares that I treat myself with prednisone rectal foam.
3 weeks ago my life changed. I had gastroenteritis on the Tuesday evening and went without any meds until the following Monday. I went to gp he confirmed gastroenteritis and signed me off work. I then started using my prednisone foam on the weds after seeing gp. I only used it because I had pain in my lower left abdomen. Since then I've had the most horrendous pain. A different pain to before. I've been in touch with IBD nurse on Monday this week and she told me to have prednisone oral steroids. 8 in a morning. I felt abit better yesterday(day 1 ) of tablets but today the pain is at the top of my stomach too. I'm waiting now fir her to ring me bk to. Like this yet more meds. This time enemas to put up at night. I'm waiting also fir an appointment to come through to be seen in clinic. I may have to have a colonoscopy. Scared stiff!
