Excercise after surgery

Postby Shaun » 29 Sep 2013, 13:57

Hi i use to have an anal fissure and had a surgery around 4 years ago. Everything was perfectly fine after that. From last 3 months i started working out in the gym. A month before i went to gym after taking a bowel movement and started using an eliptical. I don't know what happened within 5 min i felt anal area swelled but i ignored that it should be fine. i continued to workout after the eliptical for another hour. When i came home and was going to shower when i checked that there was blood on my anal area. Anyways after that next 2 times when i had bowel movement there was blood with it and anal area swelled again everytime. I got really scared that if there is a fissure again. i stopped going to gym from 1 month now and am applying coconut oil regularly. Because of coconut oil i am not having blood anymore but anal still gets swelled everytime after i had bowel movement. The swelling is lot less now because i am applying coconut oil from a month now. I just want to know that do i have anal fissure again and do i have to really worry about it. Also i was thinking to start the gym again and only working the upper body. Really looking for reply. Thanks
Shaun

I have had pelvic floor repair surgery as well as fissure surgery - VY advancement flap and I was told not to lift anything heavier than a kettle for 4 weeks and I think longer term I will not be able to lift anything very heavy at all as i could do more damage to the pelvic floor by raising intrabdominal pressure too much.

I went ahead and worked out. I used caution, eased into it, and used light weights. I might have pushed it a bit too much at times (even though all the awesome folks here warned me not to). Luckily, in the end, everything turned out ok. Check out my post-op diary for details on it.
