I'm suffering with anal/rectum pain due to a rectocele. I want to ask my GP for pain relief (he's already referred me to my local hospital and I'm waiting to see a colorectal surgeon, but my pain has got worse since I last saw my GP). I'm in the UK - Can you get analgesic suppositories prescribed on the NHS? - If so, I would be grateful to know what I could ask for. (I can't tolerate oral pain killers as I've got IBS and a gallstone and the lidnocaine in haemorrhoid cream only helps a little bit; I need something stronger...plus my GP doesn't think that I've got piles or a fissure, so I'd like to try and get something prescribed that's more appropriate.)
Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can give to help me.
