Proctitis is inflammation of the lining of the rectum, called the rectal mucosa. Proctitis can be short term (acute) or long term (chronic)
Unfortunately because of the damage caused by the radiation proctitis often becomes a chronic condition which is difficult to treat and surgery is eventually required. Because of numerous postoperative complications and no guarantee of success, surgery should only be done as a last resort.
