3.5 Weeks Post LIS Surgery

Postby tester1 » 05 Jan 2013, 09:03

Hello -
I have been dealing with an anal fissure for five years and finally decided to end my daily life of using creams by getting the LIS and fissurectomy. I knew the risk of incontinence which is why I waited so long to have the surgery.
Now that 3.5 weeks have passed, the bleeding comes and goes, but I have fecal leakage. Does anyone else have this and does it go away with time? It seems like there are only a few postings that discuss minor soiling.
I'm on a high fiber diet and take one capful of Miralax per day...I'm wondering if that's the problem and/or if this is normal in the weeks after LIS.
This is all so scary....I have started to think about how "real" permanent damage can affect my life. I never thought I would be one of the "statistics..."
I hope to hear some words of encouragement to help me heal :D
