I would like to point out that I am copping very well after having my bag removed and had J Pouch surgery however could someone please advise me ,I have a very sore back side that is very painful any advice on creams or sprays of some sort.!
Some more info:
At present I am still in recovery period . I live not to far from the new forest. I like to go on walks bird watching enjoying the wild life e.t.c. At present this is not possible due to my unpredictable movements.I do hope that I can get back to as normal as possible.
I do not have UC but had my colon removed due to bowel cancer and was directed to this site . I would think that the symptoms would be the same for any reason after the bowel removal!. The symptoms i have are using the loo up to six times a day and the same at night , very loose stools, and very sore and painful backside – Any advice !
My name is mick I am sixty years old I have not had UC but had my bowel removed due to bowel cancer . I had no symptoms but found out after receiving a test sample kit in the post that you receive when you turn sixty. I was in hospital for five weeks this was due to infections e.t.c . My main problem is using the loo up to six times a day and the same at night resulting in a very sore and painful backside any advice on creams / sprays e.t.c would be welcome thank you. At present I am not working and without employment I was laid off a about the same time I found out I had bowel cancer. At present it is impossible to work due to the amount of times I need to use the toilet day and night this makes me very tired i also have a very sore and painful backside I have asked for some sort of assistance to help with bills e.t.c and was told to put a claim in for personal independent payments ( PIP) . I filled in all the forms e.t.c and have now be en told that I need to attend a assessment in my present condition this could be a problem . I have contacted them and told them the situation and asked about the toilet arrangement at the place of the meeting as some days I can’t leave the house they told me that they have toilets there but are not used for general use but it should be OK !! I asked for a home visit and was told that should you be entitled to a claim this would set your claim back some time. I find this very unfair and insensitive for what I have been through.
At present I am using sudocream for sore backside
