I am new to this forum but my husband is in hospital at the moment and I need some advice. Last month he had a colonoscopy as at least once a month he was having diareah with mucus in his stools. The colonoscopy diagnosed he had mild proctitis and he was given oral and a pessary to use until the consultant was to see him again in August. Whilst using the pessary is was causing itching and pain in his rectum so his GP said to stop using but continue with the oral medication. We went on holiday and he was fine bowel movement was normal then a few days after returning to the UK he was constantly on the loo. He was given Predosoline rectum foam to use which made it worse, he went back to his GP who told him to stop using and put him back on the pessary in the meantime he was on the loo at least 8 times in 24 hours. He is not in hospital they have done stool samples for C-Diff which was negative and gut cultures which were negative. His consultant says he may have colitis and he is still on the loo even 10 days after his first bought of direah. He is a chronic pan sufferer and now has the prospect of living with this new diagnosis. What will this mean foe him in the future? He is terrified that he will become house-bound with no real quality of life and he has already suffered for so long (8 years) with his back - please help with any advice!
