Re:Your trip to the Proctologist

Hi Surfer27,

Well, last week went great. I was taking the prescribed medicines and to my knowledge I didnít smell. But I was also wearing padding around my butt, so I donít know if I simply suffocated the smell or if the treatment was working.

Yesterday was NOT so good. I smelled the stench of rotten egg gas approx 1 hour after eating lunch (I had a sandwich with cheese on itÖ.Iím really close to believing Iíll need to give up ALL dairy). It occurred a few times more before quitting time at work.

Today as been okay, but Iím SUPER STRESSED about stinking and Iíve been purposely staying away from my cubicle (where the burning, gas, etc strikes me the worst). Iíve taken the Bentyl and it does help with the burning a bit, but when Iím really worked up (like yesterday!), I still experience discomfort.

The proctologist referred me to a physical therapist for help with my loose anal muscles. First appt next weekÖ.Iíll follow-up then on that. I donít hold out much hope with this thoughÖ.Iíd much rather solve the gas mystery, than strengthen muscles to hold in a fart (which will just cause WICKED stomach cramps!).

Oh, one other thing, after beginning the medicines (Bentyl & Align), I donít get the burning sensation after a bowel movement and the feeling of incomplete evacuation is gone (for now). Hopefully, that remains the case.

I definitely think visiting a proctologist is worth it. At least, you can finally start wondering ďWhat if?Ē. Iíd long suspected hemorrhoids and had been treating it with Prep H (which wasnít working). It was a relief to at least rule ONE thing out.
