Does anyone know about diversion proctitis after colostomy?

I had no diagnosis, but I think I had diversion proctitis after my colectomy.  I never had any pain with it, but I had a lot of mucos discharge and occasionally some blood with it.  I had already decided I was going to have a proctectomy in the future, so I just dealt with it until I had surgery.  If you have major concerns about it, talk to your surgeon.  They may suggest a suppository of some kind if neccesary.

Thank you so much for telling me that. 

Good to know I have a couple of options.  Surgery is a 

Option.  Just not sure I can go through that


All the best to you.
