Anyone use ointment soon after surgery?

Postby msimon » 17 Nov 2014, 19:50

Hi all. I had LIS 5 days ago and retore today. Spasming something awful. I was wondering if one can use nifedipine this soon after surgery. Despite a couple of calls I cannot get a hold of my Dr.

Msimon,

Have you been able to get a hold of your doctor? Can you call the hospital and ask what you should do?
2/14 Fissure developed
3/14 Diagnosed w/ fissure given Nifedipine
4/14 Referred to Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy=Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
5/14 Fissure declared "healed"/chronic anal pain persists
9/5/14 Botox to pelvic floor
9/22 biofeedback

I've been given diltiazem... But I'm holding off until I'm not so swollen and raw.

I hope by now you have an answer.

My CRS finally called me. Said it was fine to use the ointment already. I wonder how on earth I'll get it down there as it is agony just to spread my butt cheeks in the slightest! And I am swollen and raw too. Might be worth it though as the spasms are truly breath taking!
