I have been dealing with rectal discomfort for a year now. Since then I’ve had a CT scan, ultrasound, barium enema, colonoscopy and recently visited a proctologist. The colonoscopy revealed dormant colitis, internal hemorrhoids and a polyp which was removed and biopsied. The proctologist did an exam but did not find any infection or abnormalities. I have pretty normal stool (no blood). I have thin stool at times, but the specialist chalked it up to the hemorrhoids. It has been very frustrating because the discomfort is daily and I am running out of options in terms of testing or procedures. Any advice or similar stories?
