External Numbness 1 Month After Surgery

Postby aros52 » 18 Apr 2013, 17:26

Hi,
I had a lateral internal sphincterotomy a month ago. This question is quite embarrassing but I have noticed since the surgery that my anus feels numb/lack of sensation to the touch. I was wondering if nerve endings can be damaged with this type of surgery. Is this is normal and can this be permanent? Or will I get sensation back? I was also wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Image

Welcome to the Forum, aros52.
I have not heard of numbness after LIS, but I have also not had the surgery. I do suggest that you speak to your surgeon if this is worrying you. I would imagine that surgery like this can cause all different sensations and I know that quite a few of our members have taken some time to recover from LIS.
Good luck!
