My husband has gone through the last 8 years with nerve damage to his right leg due to an L5 S1 discectomy. He is currently on Tramadol and Amitriptyline. He has good days and bad days. He has also very recently been diagnosed with mild proctitus (inflammation of the rectum). He was given some tablets and a pessary to insert but the pessary did not agree with him so he stopped taking it. We were on holiday last week in warmer climbs and he had not trouble at all with his back/leg pain or anything with his rectum. However, since returning he has had constant dioreah which he says is a burning pain when he goes. It got so bad at the weekend that he took himself to an urgent treatment centre and he was given some predosoline rectal foam to use. He also contacted his own doctor and he asked whether my husband had any pressure in his back which my husband has and he said that all of this is related to the damaged nerve. I was just wondering whether anyone else has had this problem when their nerve has been damaged or how to deal with the every day affects of proctitus? Please anyone with any advice would be helpful - he has gone through so much and we just don't know how much more he can take!
