I am using this medication as I have radiation proctitis. This is from direct radiation I had when I had prostate cancer. Can anyone tell me if this cream will help me get rid of the proctitis. It has caused a lot of rectal bleeding.

I haven't found anything to get rid of radiation proctitis. The only thing I know to do are tub soaks and going to bed during the flares with bleeding. I have had the proctitis for approx. 15 months. I have been under a gastroenterologist for the proctitis and he prescribed Bentyl for the muscle spasms. I have worked with my diet but that has not helped either. Please give me some feedback as I am desperate to find any answers.

I have radiation proctitis. The hydrocortisone helped for only a brief period of time. I was bleeding so bad and was finally referred to a gastroenterologist out of town who did the argon laser cooagulation procedure on me along with a sigmoid. I have not had any bleeding since.
